New Air Force One Will Be 'Red, White And Blue,' Trump Says

"Air Force One is going to be incredible", he continued.

A source familiar with the redesign told CNN last week that Trump was deeply involved in the conversation about a redesign of the aircraft, but no decisions had been reached on a final paint scheme.

Critics have said the change casts aside an iconic American look and on Twitter, many pointed out that Russia's presidential plane also has a red, white and blue design.

President Trump said in an interview with CBS News that aired Tuesday that after the USA cut a deal with Boeing for a new presidential jetliner, it occurred to him that maybe it was time for a change. It's gonna be the top of the line, the top in the world.

USA aircraft manufacturer Boeing is to supply the next presidential jetliner, which won't take to the skies for several years.

"Boeing gave us a good deal. Take a guess", Trump told CBS's Jeff Glor.

In an interview with CBS News, Mr Trump said the new Boeing planes will be "red, white and blue, which I think is appropriate".

President Donald Trump has big plans for the next iteration of Air Force One.

The current Air Force One model has been used for the past three decades.

Trump conceded more presidents than him may enjoy the new plane, which got a lot of use this past week as Trump traveled to and around Europe for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, his visit to the United Kingdom, and his meeting in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I hate to say this, it's gonna be a long time", Trump said.

Air Force budget documents released in February for fiscal year 2019 disclosed a $3.9 billion cost for the two-aircraft program.

In December 2016, Trump tweeted that an order for new planes at more than $4 billion was too much to pay Boeing.

In Tuesday's interview, the president stressed that the new planes will "be largely for future presidents", citing the "very complex project". Technically speaking, any plane the president is traveling on becomes known as Air Force One for the duration of the commander in chief's travel. "But by the time it gets built, you're going to have many presidents hopefully use it and enjoy it".
