I am not sure if Joe Biden’s latest move to remove Trump from legislative records is petty or practical, but I don’t like it either way.
When Trump approved the new Air Force One planes, he also ordered up a new paint scheme.
The plane would finally have the United States colors instead of the robin's egg blue that Jackie K. was so fond of.
Joe Biden, however, just changed that, telling the designers to leave the colors as they have always been, reports Business Insider.
Don’t Like It
I have nothing against Jackie, but I never quite understood how the plane that flies the president of the United States looked more like the flag of South Dakota or Delaware than it did Old Glory.
The paint scheme of the current Air Force One was actually a joint venture between the Kennedys and French industrial designer Raymond Loewy.
Jackie wanted the plane to have less of a military look, so they finally settled on robin’s egg blue and white.
According to a New York Post report, the red, white, and blue scheme that Trump wanted was going to take longer to deliver the plane.
The color scheme also happened to closely match the color scheme that Donald Trump uses on his personal plane, so I am sure that had something to do with Biden’s decision as well.
That aside, I would have preferred that we finally have a plane sporting our national colors, but that is no longer to be, well, that is unless Trumps wins the nomination and presidency, at which point I am sure he will switch it back.
The new planes are scheduled to be delivered in 2027 and 2028, with modifications that will include electrical power upgrades, a medical facility and a self-defense system.
