Like the current Air Force One VC-25A, the livery design for “Next Air Force One” is designated VC-25B.
US President Joe Biden has chosen the “next Air Force One”, the VC-25B, a 21st-century modernization with a design that resembles the livery of the current Air Force One VC-25A.
Although the VC-25B is represented by the larger 747-8i aircraft, the VC-25B livery has three main differences with the VC-25A livery based on the 747-200. The light blue on the VC-25B is a slightly deeper and more modern shade than the “robin’s egg” blue on the VC-25A. Additionally, the VC-25B engines will use a dark blue cockpit area instead of the VC-25A’s “robin’s egg” blue. Finally, the VC-25B does not have a polished metal section, as modern commercial aircraft skin composites do not allow this.
The VC-25B program will provide a new air force to enable the President of the United States (POTUS) to perform the roles of head of state, chief executive and commander in chief. The aircraft will be uniquely modified to provide the POTUS, staff and guests with safe, reliable air travel with equal communications and security capabilities at the White House.
VC-25B deliveries are scheduled for 2027 for the first flight and 2028 for the second flight. The Air Force is positioned to keep the VC-25A available and operationally ready until the VC-25B is delivered.
