Boeing is currently working on a set of new 747s to replace the current fleet being used today. President Trump plans to make the skies more Patriotic as he wants a paint scheme that “looks more American”.
Currently Air Force One is a two tone blue with white. We expect this new theme is going all out in the skies with a Patriotic Red, white, and blue.
Fox News reports…
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.
Trump also wants the pane to be more comfortable as he has claimed the current bed seems more like a fold-out couch. Let’s see if he gets his wishes.
