    Agreed. Air Force One livery is iconic and should remain.

    I am fine with changing it but not a huge fan of that. Ditch the gold, more read and a Presidential seal. Also where are the frikking missiles and lasers??

    I'm good with changing it too. Wipe out years of swampiness, and a way for Trump to leave his mark, even if he never rides in it. Plus, it's like our flag flying around!

    I think the only reason Air Force One needs replacing is Trump is wearing out the old one. Hope in 2021-2024 Air Force One will be flying POTUS Trump.

    Melania picked the colors; no chance for any negotiations boys!

    I think not having AR is a bad idea. You may not need it much, but when you need it, you really need it.

    The old saying goes....

    I would rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it

    Tell me a couple of under wing bomb pylons wouldn't send quite a message though.

    It's certainly classier, but it doesn't say "Air Force One". The new paint scheme could just as well be at home on an airliner.

    I remember when Trump objected to obscene price for the planes. He suggested to keep using his personal plane.
    Of course media condemned him getting $1.4 BILLION savings.
