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

Donald Trump confirms Air Force One is getting a red white and blue paint job

"Formal replacement efforts began in 2011 and the new aircraft will replace the current Air Force One planes that are now 31 years old", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday.

In an interview with CBS News, Trump said that two new replacements of the presidential jet due to be unveiled in several years will be painted red, white and blue, in a departure from the plane's current light-blue colour scheme.

US President Donald Trump has ordered a bold, new paint job for Air Force One.

The interview came the same day that the Department of Defense announced that Boeing had secured a $3.9 billion contract to build two new Air Force One planes.

Trump says the familiar baby blue color on the presidential aircraft will give way to a red-white-and-blue color scheme. 'Air Force One is going to be incredible.

Trump derisively calls the hue a "Jackie Kennedy color" and wanted something that 'looks more American, 'Axios news website reported earlier this month.

"And it's going be red, white and blue, which I think is appropriate". "And we were able to take that", Mr. Trump said.

"It's going to be the top of the line, the top in the world", he said.

Trump also reportedly wants to make his bed on the presidential plane larger and more comfortable. Today, that means one of two highly customized Boeing 747-200B series aircraft.

The current Air Force One planes are almost 30 years old, and first carried President George H W Bush. They're expected to be delivered by December 2024, what would be the last full year of Trump's presidency should he win a second term, Reuters reports.

In Tuesday's interview, the president stressed that the new planes will "be largely for future presidents", citing the "very complex project". He lambasted initial plans for the update shortly after his election, tweeting in 2016 that costs were "out of control" and threatening to cancel the order.
