Biden cancels Trump’s design for Air Force One due to cost and delay

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s administration has ditched former President Donald Trump’s red, white and blue design for the new generation of presidential jets.

The decision was made following an Air Force review suggesting it would increase costs and delay delivery of new jets.

Boeing is currently modifying two Boeing 747-800s that will carry the Air Force One designator when the president is on board to replace the existing fleet of two aging Boeing 747-200s.

Trump in 2018 ordered new jumbo jets to ditch the iconic blue and white Kennedy-era robin’s egg design for a deeper navy and a streak of dark red.

According to Politico, which reviewed the 2023 budget documents, the new planes may not be ready to fly a president for four years. This is apparently two years later than the original plan.
