Boeing 747 for the next Air Force One.

Seems like a reasonable choice, when your only alternative is made by the French.

The Air Force said Wednesday that the Boeing 747-8 will serve as the next presidential aircraft.
“The presidential aircraft is one of the most visible symbols of the United States of America and the office of the president of the United States,” Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James said in a statement. “The Boeing 747-8 is the only aircraft manufactured in the United States (that), when fully missionized, meets the necessary capabilities established to execute the presidential support mission, while reflecting the office of the president of the United States of America consistent with the national public interest.”
