this may spark a debate, but does anyone in here think that its time to freshen up AF1 with some new colours? Maybe a little more red white and blue, as opposed to white and blue?? Also, which presidential aircraft has the best c/s??? Start posting!

It may look nice to freshen the colors up a bit, but I personally love the current paint. Also, you have to remember these planes are used on diplomatic journeys and shouldn't be like some of the flashy planes out there now. If they changed it, they would probably stick to a very conservative design.

The plane IMO is fine the way it is and as what Newark777 said, the presidential planes should not used as fancy showpieces to take away from its main purpose.
If any heads of state planes get a new color, it should be the the A310's (CC150's) that we have in our country as the two shade grey is so bland.

I love the colors! I like the blue design with it starting out as a stripe above the lighter blue and then the darker one expands to cover the cockpit. I love it but maybe the next plane in 8-15 years can have some red in it or have the US flag on the tail. Maybe get the eagle in their. It needs to represent America and the strong and bold look is very fitting. No need for changing it now.
I say, keep the blue just put red and the flag with an eagle.
