  • Time for a change? Trump reportedly wants to give Air Force One a makeover. More

A report from the DC insider yentas at Axios suggests that President Donald Trump is considering a new "more American" look for Air Force One compared to its current pain job, which the president described as "Jackie Kennedy color".

The White House announced in February that it struck a deal with Boeing over the development of two new Air Force One planes.

"It's just the concern that President Trump the showman is going to go too far with changing the look of this iconic plane that so many people are familiar with and a lot of people wonder why do it?"

He added to Axios, "JFK and Jackie Kennedy approved that timeless design (created pro bono by the premier mid-20th century industrial designer Raymond Loewy) to replace an earlier version of Air Force One that had simply said "MILITARY AIR TRANSPORT SERVICE" and which made conspicuous use of the color orange, which Kennedy rightfully found 'gaudy'".

Shortly after taking office, Mr. Trump took the unusual step of personally negotiating with Boeing for two brand new 747s. Trump has the authority to change the design, some top officers within the Air Force reportedly prefer the current blue, which they say is "known around the world".

President George W. Bush meets with his Chief of Staff Andy Card in the President.s bedroom aboard Air Force One Sept. 11, 2001.

Per the Sun, the aircraft is "instantly recognizable" as it's marked by a large American flag. He instead opted for blue, which was reportedly his favorite color. The new planes are unlikely to be ready before Inauguration Day 2021.
