I think a little later, I like the bigger flag, the colors are growing on me, I like the current scheme, but I think it should be red white and blue. I thought I saw someone had printed 1:400 Limo, that's needed, I'd like a !:400 Limo and chevy suburban and maybe one with a gun turret, a new paint schem AF-1 could be made, but I suppose we aren't sure about eh antenna layout
When are the 747-8s supposed to be delivered? 2020? 2021?
First one 12/2024, second 2025.
That's probably the in service date. They were both built in 2016 and are currently stored at Kelly Field/Lackland AFB San Antonio, Tx and will have to be fitted out and modified for the job.
Honestly considering by 2024 Trump's possible second term will be over (and there's a real possibility he won't get that second term at all) I wouldn't be sure if the next president would like to keep his changes.
Personally speaking the new paint scheme is an atrocity and abomination and whoever designed it should feel ashamed. The current AF1 is iconic and a hugely recognised symbol of America, which it acomplishes it in such a subtle way. That new scheme looks like it's desperately trying to look American and its failing miserably, looking like a 20-year-old white supremacist nationalist. The only reason the scheme is changing is just for the sake of changing.
Certain people have to approve the new design. The current livery is iconic, no doubt, but in addition to how the aircraft looks, a great many thing have to be taken into consideration. Personally, I don't hate it, it looks very executive, and the dark blue has a nice feel to it. I'm not entirely sure it's AF1 quality just yet, but we might know towards the middle to tail end of Trump's second term, which is when the Air Force should solidify a lot of these details.
What I also like about SAM 28000 and 29000 is a the bare metal in some parts. It gives them a very striking look.
We'll see. I'll be open minded about it.

Kinda like most of the Democrat Party. I mean, they are the party of slavery ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Seriously, calm down, turn off CNN and have a cookie. You don't have to get triggered about it.
