I thought that the FAA made it mandatory that all aircraft doors be outlined with a contrasting color so that they would be easily identifiable in the event of an emergency. If that is true, then why doesn't Air Force One comply

Military aircraft are public service aircraft.
And as such do not need to conform to the FAR's.
That is why OAS up here has that Beaver with the Garrett in the nose.
That is why all those Air Tankers converted from Anti-sub aircraft are still flying.
That is why the military doesn't need to have any of their aircraft certified.
Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but if you contract an aircraft to the government if it longer then 30 days, it is considered a "public use" aircraft and no longer has to comply with the FAR's. Now when the contract ends you need to go back to comply with them.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
