A fresh new paint job for Air Force One may be underway

Air Force One is specially adapted to include a medical suite as well as a Presidential suite

"Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion".

Air Force One is an iconic symbol of the American presidency, but President Trump reportedly wants to update the design on the jet with a "more American" look.

"Anyone who doubts how strongly Americans feel about the way Air Force One looks should go to the Reagan Library in California and see how many people go there to look at the plane that Ronald Reagan flew on while he was President", presidential historian Michael Beschloss told Axios.

He added to Axios, "JFK and Jackie Kennedy approved that timeless design (created pro bono by the premier mid-20th century industrial designer Raymond Loewy) to replace an earlier version of Air Force One that had simply said "MILITARY AIR TRANSPORT SERVICE" and which made conspicuous use of the color orange, which Kennedy rightfully found 'gaudy'".

Jose Mourinho heaps praise on Croatia World Cup hero Ivan Perisic
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insisted England have a reason to be optimistic following their semi-final loss to Croatia in extra-time.

U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump disembark from Air Force One as they arrive at London Stansted Airport in Stansted, England, Thursday, July 12, 2018. According to Axios, the president would prefer a design that includes red, white and blue.

Wish lists aside, the outlet notes that Trump may only get to enjoy a ride aboard his dream jet if he makes it into a second term, reporting that the new pair of 747s are "very unlikely" to be ready before January 20, 2021. Harry Truman left behind Roosevelt's nondescript "Sacred Cow" for the eye-catching "Independence", painted as an eagle.

The president also reportedly requested the presidential bed on the new plane receive an upgrade from its couch-like sleeping quarters to a more comfortable arrangement. The current bed has been compared to a futon.
