US President Trump Wants To Redesign Air Force One And The Internet Has Ideas…
By Yoon Sann Wong, 13 Jul 2018
It looks like the iconic blue-and-white aesthetic of the Air Force One is in talks of becoming a thing of the past.
According to Axios, which initially reported the probable redesign, US President Trump doesn’t think that the current aesthetic accurately represents the United States of America.
Industrial designer Raymond Loewy was behind Air Force One’s last redesign in 1962 for President John F. Kennedy. The craft was painted in sky blue and cyan.
Trump suggests that in its place, a design that appears “more American” and isn’t a “Jackie Kennedy color” should take over. This is believed to preferably include the colors red, white, and blue.
An official shared with CNN that while Trump is in talks concerning the potential redesign, no further details have been confirmed.
With that, netizens took it upon themselves to throw forth some ideas and suggestions that could forever change the way Trump flies.

President Trump wants to update the paint job on the next version of Air Force One, ditching the iconic robin's-egg blue (which he calls a "Jackie Kennedy color") for a bolder, "more American" look. https://t.co/xi78ZAVgz6— Special Report Team (@SpecialReport) July 13, 2018
