Last week, President Trump indicated that he intends to change the signature light blue color scheme of Air Force One, which has been in place since the early 1960’s. The robin egg’s blue was a classic color choice of First Lady Jackie Kennedy, which the president would prefer less than an all-American selection: red, white and blue.
According to CBS, the new Air Force One planes have been described by Trump as “top of the line.” The president reported, “Air Force One is going to be incredible…and it’s going to be red, white and blue. Which I think is appropriate.”
President Trump confirms big changes are in store for Air Force One. He tells @CBSEveningNews' @JeffGlor the new model of the plane will be updated, both inside and out and will be painted red, white and blue.

The Hill reports that the new planes are being made by Boeing, and will not be ready for the next few years. It is an expensive undertaking that Trump may not even get to benefit from himself, but all sources indicate that he is going through with the redesign.
