On January 14, 1943, Franklin D. Roosevelt became the first president to travel by airplane while in office when he traveled from Miami to Morocco to meet with Winston Churchill. This was the beginning of the Casablanca Conference, which was set up to plan European strategy for the next phase of the war.
