Thought he made a deal to replace the present one - buying a plane that someone else canceled the contract on and Boeing was stuck with

Your both right..............

President Trump is reportedly hoping to make the high skies great again with a new and improved patriotic paint job for Air Force One that “looks more American,” in addition to requesting bigger, more comfortable beds on board. 

Axios reported this week that POTUS has a few specific wishes for the pair of Boeing 747s that are currently in the works to replace the presidential jets in use now. Citing an unnamed source, the outlet recalls that Trump personally negotiated the $4 billion dollar deal in the Oval Office with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in February for the new planes.

The president reportedly wants the jets to be outfitted in a color scheme that "looks more American" and replace the iconic robin’s egg blue declared a "Jackie Kennedy color.” Technically termed "luminous ultramarine", the plane’s current design was selected by President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy in the 1960s, Axios reports.

Trump’s preferred color scheme would incorporate red, white and blue. In addition, the commander in chief is said to want bigger, more comfortable beds, like those of his personal Boeing 757, in favor of what Axios describes as the current “couch-like sleeping configuration” aboard Air Force One.

Wish lists aside, the outlet notes that Trump may only get to enjoy a ride aboard his dream jet if he makes it into a second term, reporting that the new pair of 747s are “very unlikely” to be ready before Jan. 20, 2021.

I was given the understanding that the 747's had been retired, and 767's were replacing them. I didn't know they were sticking with the 747

Lou, it seems like the 747 were built for some foreign nation and then they folded on the contract ????  TRUMP found out about the two planes in Boeing stock and got a " special deal" to have them remanufactured as AF1 ? .......... at least I think that was the way it went. ?

The new Air Force One will be jumbo jets left over from a bankrupt Russian airline

Aug. 7, 2017, 11:31 AM
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
 
 
 
 

 

On Friday, the US Air Force confirmed that it has purchased two Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental commercial airliners that will be converted over to serve as the nation's next generation presidential transports.

The decision to purchase ready-made commercial airliners instead of custom-built aircraft is part of President Trump's plan to keep the costs of the Presidential Airlift Recapitalization program under control.

"This award is a significant step toward ensuring an overall affordable program," Principal deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, Darlene Costello, said in a statement. "As we move forward, we will continue to seek and implement cost savings opportunities."

The USAF expects to begin the conversion process in 2019 with the planes set to enter service in 2024— at which point the current pair of Boeing 747-200-based VC-25A will be 34 years old.

After today and the Dumpster believes Putin over anyone in the USA, including the Justice Department, I think he will probably paint the new Air Force one with the RUSSIAN flag on it's side

Air Force One a two engined craft?  Not likely.

...and no, Obama could be elected again.
