Donald Trump: New Air Force One Will Be Red, White, and Blue

Trump reveals details of planned Air Force One makeover

"Air Force One is going to be incredible", he continued.

Kennedy's baby blue: The next version of Air Force One will be painted in the colors of the American flag, according to President Donald Trump.

The contract followed the outlines of the informal deal reached between Boeing and the White House in February. President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy worked with NY designer Raymond Loewy on the presidential aircraft's look in the 1960s, according to the New England Historical Society.

The new paint job for a global symbol of US power would replace the blue, light blue and white color scheme that dates to the Kennedy era. The idea of changing it has already generated friction with one presidential historian. "And we were able to take that", Mr. Trump said. Trump put the spotlight on Air Force One shortly before taking office when he criticized Boeing Co. for the expense of the converted 747 jumbo jets.

Designer Raymond Loewy - who created the famous Coca Cola bottle - picked the typeface because of its similarity to the lettering in the first printed copy of the Declaration of Independence.

It's large enough for Trump's 6'4', broad-shouldered frame and dressed with more than just a blue blanket. It's gonna be the top of the line, the top in the world.

Trump says new Air Force One will be decked out in patriotic colors: red, white, and blue

Converting a standard passenger jet into Air Force One takes time, and the current project isn't scheduled for completion until after the next Inauguration Day in January 2021.

"I hate to say this, it's gonna be a long time", Trump said.

When will Air Force One be ready?

America's flag-loving commander-in-chief has revealed details of his plan to redesign the new Air Force One so that it has a patriotic red, white and blue exterior. "But by the time it gets built, you're gonna have many presidents, hopefully, use it and enjoy it".

Although Air Force One is widely believed to be the Boeing 747 jet which usually carries the president, it is actually the call sign given to any plane that is carrying the Commander-in-Chief.

Weeks after the election, Mr Trump had tweeted that Boeing was making a new presidential aircraft "but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion". Cancel order!' he boomed on Twitter.
