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.
