Description On Air Force One, 22 November 1963, immediately after Lyndon B. Johnson takes the oath of office as President of the United States following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy earlier in the day.

Visible are left to right Texas congressman Albert R. Thomas, Johnson's wife Lady Bird Johnson, Lyndon B Johnson (turning head to his right), Kennedy's widow Jacqueline B. Kennedy, Texas congressman Jack Brooks.

Some commentators have interpreted the photo to show Congressman Thomas winking at Johnson.
Date 1963-11-22

(No higher resolution, but includes section ceiling of plane cropped off from here. Stoughton was said to be deliberately framing photos of event high to avoid the large bloodstains on the lower part of Mrs. Kennedy's dress.
