Boeing’s new Air Force One aircraft may arrive later, more expensive

“Boeing Co.” the new Air Force One aircraft was expected to arrive a year late and cost taxpayers more than planned, a senior Pentagon spokesman said.

The aerospace giant has offered to hand over two new presidential planes by the end of 2025, a year after it was scheduled, acting Air Force Assistant Secretary Darlene Costello said during a home panel show on Tuesday.

When Boeing was on board the commander-in-chief, it signed a $ 3.9 billion deal to replace the aging 747th aircraft, known as the Air Force One, in 2018 with then-President Donald Trump. Boeing is expected to raise an additional $ 500 million. Goverlovebylifent funding for these modified 747 jumbo aircraft due to increased costs associated with the Kovid-19 pandemic and supplier bankruptcy.


An Air Force spokesman said Boeing had not officially requested additional funding. Ms Costello said Boeing intended to send such a request to the Air Force. Boeing declined to comment on the matter.

“This is the hope of all of us,” said Joe Courtney, a Democrat from Connecticut and a member of parliament, chairman of the Armed Services Subcommittee.

The delay, the first for the Air Force One replacement program since the 2018 deal, comes at a time when Boeing has faced commercial, aerospace and other defense failures in recent years. In May, the aircraft manufacturer stopped delivering its popular 787 Dreamliner so it could answer questions from U.S. air safety regulators.

Pentagon officials are considering Boeing’s proposal for the Air Force One program and plan to update the delivery schedule for the heavily modified 747-8 jumbo aircraft later this year, Ms Costello said. The delay in the new planes could mean that the president delivered the current two modified 747s, which Boeing George XV Bush delivered when he was president, longer than planned in service.

Boeing paid $ 318 million for the aircraft in the first quarter, citing the effects of the pandemic and problems with supplier GDC Technics. Last year, Boeing also received a $ 168 million charge.


GDC Technics was hired to equip the interiors of the aircraft, officially known as the VC-25B. Fort Worth, Texas, is one of several companies specializing in equipping the interior of executive planes for VIPs and state leaders. Boeing sued the supplier in April, claiming it had missed deadlines set in the project. In the court documents of the supplier, which appealed to Chapter 11 on Bankruptcy Protection, these delays were challenged by Boeing’s guilt.

A GDC Technics spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment
