After President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, Vice President Johnson went to Dallas Love Field and was sworn in by federal judge Sarah T. Hughes as president.

It was the first time a female judge swore in an American president, it was also the first time a United States president was sworn in west of the Mississippi River and on an airplane.
