I don't like the new livery at all.. the current two tone blue color scheme on white is much better!!

But you know what they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!

Bottom portion reminds me of the last TWA livery!

It is not final as apparently Congress has to approve the change...so we will never see a change in our lifetime if it is up to them!

Ah, no. Nothing wrong with the current look.

Yup, that was my initial thought too!

When I first heard Trump wants to change the AF1 livery, I had the same reaction as others here: "No, leave it alone!"

But I'll admit, I don't dislike the proposed new livery as much as I thought I would. I don't know if it's because of the TWA vibe, but it's not bad. Of the 4 variations shown, I like the top one best, with blue engines and entirely blue belly.

Yeah, it's not horrible, but I prefer the current blue colors much more. It is scheme known world wide.

Well, if we were to go along with the times, then one could say that the color blue is a male-dominated color. Therefore, to include all of the 159 different gender identities now, the new color should be the entire color spectrum.

TWA's last livery all the way, is what it is just move the red cheat line up to the window line an there you have it. While I don't mind it, I don't see the need for change at all, in fact, it should be out of any President's hands to decide and left to the American tax payers to vote for any change.

The existing AF1 livery is truly iconic. It gives the impression of real class and statesmanship. That livery is admired by most (but not all) who see it. Still, if you don’t want it to stand out in a crowd, then I guess this is the type of livery to go for. IMO, a crying shame if the existing livery is abandoned. Still, he’s not my country’s head of state, none of my business really I suppose.
