Trump Unveils Never-Before-Seen Plans to Revamp Air Force One With a New Patriotic Paint Job

President Donald Trump is letting future presidents know he wants to revamp Air Force One for them and not himself.

During an ABC News exclusive interview that aired Thursday, Trump offered an inside look for the first time of what will be a new presidential aircraft, which is a Boeing 747-200B series aircraft.

Trump’s possible redesign would change the historic baby blue-and-white paint job of the aircraft, offering it the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue in stripes.

“Here’s your new Air Force One,” Trump told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, revealing slightly different versions of the redesign.

Asked if the aircraft frame is still a 747, the president responded, “It’s a 747, but, you know, it’s a much bigger plane. It’s a much bigger wingspan.”

Currently, the iconic aircraft contains a large office, conference room, and medical suite, and “the plane’s two food preparation galleys can feed 100 people at a time,” according to the White House.

While Trump revealed his new design for the Air Force One, he shared there are “a couple of secrets” regarding the aircraft, which wouldn’t be ready until 2024.

Watch the video below:

“I’m doing that for other presidents, not for me,” Trump said.

However, the president would need congressional approval on his plan to redesign Air Force One after the House Armed Services Committee passed an amendment on Wednesday that would create restrictions on the president’s “paint scheme, interiors and livery,” according to The Military Times.

The planes are called, “Air Force One”, not “USA One”. Stick with the blue and white.

At least his plans don’t have his name or face on the planes.

Who cares isn’t this the guy that saved millions on the new planes ?

Another frivolous tale of frivolity.

And yet if a Dem would be doing it no one would bat an eye.

That is not true. Many Democrats may be less concerned if it were a Democrat, but there would be significantly more Republicans angry if a Democrat did this.

Otis, i have noticed, at least is reliably consistent in his dislike for government spending whether it be D or R. 😉

Phoenix, that is definitely true The media, whether print or video will never bat an eye at Democrats spending money. A Republican can SAVE tons of money, make wise use of government funds, and be roundly ridiculed for doing the right thing. Joe Public will never get straight information from the media.

Dan McMonigle, so you think the Republicans are spending money wisely now? Look at our deficit! Our children will be stuck with this debt for a long time! Trump just wants a brand new paint job on Air Force One for himself! How much has he spent going to his resort in Florida and the Republicans don’t blink an eye!

The current pair have been in service since 1987. That’s 32 years, 37 by the time the new ones are ready. That’s a lot of air time. As technology advances, the interiors are redone. New planes should be updated for more modern conveniences and safety protocals. Going with our national colors instead of Air Force colors makes better sense.

Trump knows what a good air craft should be able to do. His private one was perfect just for him. AF One should be as well for later Presidents. Hopefully conservative ones.

Bill is confused about King Donald The Loser and airplanes.

When he OVERpaid for Northeast Airline, he also bought 21 of the crappiest planes in the air at that time. He then spent another million on each one that cost over $4 million to begin with. He could have started a new airline from scratch and would have been millions ahead.

The King’s airline barely lasted 3 years before it collapsed from too much debt, the same with his TWO casinos.

He is one big loser!

I guess with how nice his other planes he really would find the current Air Force One uncouth.

I wonder how much gold he incorporated to the interior design.

He won’t get to use this new plane. Story says if it’s approved it won’t be ready for five more years.

Phoenix

Yes. I did read that.

Obviously he is redesigning the outside to a style he likes better so it made sense he did the same with the inside.
