Trump Wants to Repaint Air Force One 'Red, White and Blue'

"Red, white and blue", Trump says. By that time, Trump could be finishing the final months of his second-term, or a new president will be the first to fly on it.

"Boeing gave us a good deal", Trump said.

"Air Force One is going to be incredible", Trump told CBS News.

Trump said the new aircraft are going to be "top of the line, the top in the world and ... red, white and blue".

After the jets are reconfigured for presidential use, the Air Force will begin testing, which could last for a couple of years, the same source said.

The presidential plane - it goes by the radio call sign of Air Force One when the president is on board - was once a Boeing 707 that had orange above and below the nose and "United States of America" painted on the sides in blocky, all-caps lettering.

Knowing Kennedy's affinity for blue, the designer came up with the paint scheme that is now synonymous with the presidential planes, using slate and cyan blue for the middle and wings, and leaving the top of the plane white with a silver underside.

The will-they won't-they deal between Trump and Boeing has been ironed out.

Trump meeting with Putin is the right thing for America
Reading mainly from a prepared statement, Trump said on Tuesday he had complete faith in USA intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions.

According to CNN, the current baby blue colors are from a design by Raymond Loewy for Kennedy in 1962.

President Donald Trump unveiled his plans for major changes - inside and out - to Air Force One during his recent trip to Scotland, CBS News reported. Since our inception in 1940, we have a strong heritage and tradition of meeting the highest standards of independent journalism and has expanded with publications serving all branches of the USA military.

But it's the outside of the plane, not its furniture, that announces the arrival of the most powerful man in the free world.

When will Air Force One be ready?

Mr. Trump said he's giving the plane a more patriotic paint scheme. You know what colors we're using?

But in 2016, Trump claimed that the initial price tag for the new planes was roughly $4 billion, a figure that he decried as "ridiculous" at the time.

The planes are expected to be completed by December 2024, the Department of Defense said.
