Skip to comments.Scoop: Trump wants tough new Air Force One paint job
Posted on 07/13/2018 7:18:19 PM PDT by vannrox
President Trump wants to update the paint job on the next version of Air Force One, ditching the iconic robin's-egg blue (which he calls a "Jackie Kennedy color") for a bolder, "more American" look.
The big picture: Trump rarely gets into the weeds of government negotiations. But he sat down in the Oval Office with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in February to personally hammer out the $4 billion deal for a pair of replacement 747s for use as Air Force One (the call sign for whatever Air Force plane the president is on).

I’m for a return to good old traditional by God American attitude. How about a Vargas style cheesecake of the FLOTUS as nose art!
I never cared for that powder blue color on the current AF-1.
Superimpose the US Constitution on it.
You read my mind!
Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho! SHIIIIITTTTE!!!
I like the picture in the article.
We update the look of our currency all the time.
Why not AF1...
“Superimpose the US Constitution on it.”
I like the way you think!
OK, I like Trump, but dont touch the timeless Raymond Loewy design.
Make it look like an old ww2 bomber with Melania as a pinup girl on the nose. With a big bold “America” with flag on the side.
Changing it up could be pretty cool. Was at Rosenblatt stadium years ago at the College World Series and I believe GWH Bush was president but AF1 was in Omaha ahead of his visit and when it took off, they gave it permission to fly low over the stadium. It came out from under the clouds and you could almost reach out and touch it. Amazing experience and still gives me goose bumps.
The “Airborne” Motto and Art should be fine.
“So you smart huh?!? Shiiit, I thought your head would be bigger...”
Aaaarrgh let's overturn some cars and be masked and s--t!!!
Lowey..MAYA. Most advanced yet acceptable.
