The incident was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. Alcohol is officially banned at the San Antonio plant where the plane is being developed. However, two miniature bottles of tequila were...

AFP's Sebastian Smith reported on the incident shortly after disembarking the highly modified 757-200, stating: "@realDonaldTrump just landed at Andrews on AF1. Shortly before, while descending, we flew right over a small object, remarkably close to the president’s plane. Resembled a drone though I’m no...

    The winners of the 2019 Little League World Series flew home from Washington to Louisiana in style -- aboard Air Force One.

The team then met again with Trump at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, on the tarmac near Air Force One, and they all ascended onto the presidential...

    According to Air Force Magazine, President Donald Trump's new Air Force One fleet will cost a total of $5.2 billion total, up from the 2016 estimate of $3.2 billion. Two Boeing 747-8s are being converted into VC-25s, the model used for VIP transport. They will serve as the "flying White House" starting in 2024, although Trump requested that they be ready for use in 2021. Trump had boasted that he struck a deal with Boeing to lower the cost by $1 billion of renovating the jets, which were originally built for a now-defunct Russian airline. Boeing will be paid $3.9...

    President Donald Trump revealed his design this week for a new Air Force One, showing off a set of drawings in the Oval Office that replace the Kennedy-era light blue paint job with a more masculine red, white and black. The current livery is dominated by blue, the color of the Democratic Party. Trump’s re-do has splashes of Republican red. The result resembles the color scheme of Trump’s personal Boeing 757, which 2016 campaign crowds called ‘Trump Force One.’ ‘We had different choices, here,’ Trump told ABC News, saying that he had come up with the design concepts himself. Artists’...

    President Trump, in an interview aired Thursday, unveiled the new red, white and blue paint job for the new Air Force One -- and promised that the jet would also be much bigger than the existing presidential plane. “Here’s your new Air Force One and I’m doing that for other presidents, not for me,” Trump told ABC News in the Oval Office. The scheme involves a blue base and a white top, with a thin red line through the middle where the windows are situated.

    President Donald Trump says the new Air Force One planes will be red, white and blue, a shift away from the classic "baby blue" design that they have had for decades. "Air Force One is going to be incredible," Trump told CBS in an interview over the weekend that aired on Tuesday. "It's going to be the top of the line, the top in the world. And it's going to be red, white and blue, which I think is appropriate." A source familiar with the redesign told CNN last week that Trump was deeply involved in the conversation about a...

    Axios ^ | 12JUL18 | Mike Allen
    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. The big picture: Trump rarely gets into the weeds of government negotiations. But he sat down in the Oval Office with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in February to personally hammer out the $4 billion deal for a pair of replacement 747s for use as Air Force One (the call sign for whatever Air Force plane the president is on).

    Former White House stenographer Beck Dorey-Stein has made salacious claims in her upcoming memoir, From the Corner of the Oval. Dorey-Stein says that drug-fueled flights aboard Air Force One made “awkward intimacy with colleagues suddenly just funny and bizarre. She and one of Obama’s senior staffers, Jason Wolf, had hot sex in various hotel rooms before he broke her heart. Obama’s traveling staff was comprised of mostly women, dubbed “the Vigiants”.

    A White House pool report Sunday said the aircraft appeared to come "within about 1,000 feet" of Air Force One. The Globemaster reportedly veered to Air Force One’s starboard side as the presidential aircraft traveled north from Florida. “Veterans in the press cabin remarked they had never seen anything come that close,” according to the report. “I would say beyond all doubt that this is a strange occurrence,” a retired air force lieutenant colonel said of the incident. Other White House officials on the flight included chief strategist Stephen Bannon, adviser Stephen Miller, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and Joe...
