President-elect Donald Trump blasted Boeing on Tuesday for alleged cost overruns on a new fleet of Air Force One planes and called for the government to cancel the contract, saying the project price tag is “out of control.”
Interesting. I remember reading when Boeing was working on building the new Air Force One.
On the one hand I think Trump has a point Boeing might be charging way to much for this airplane. Trump does own a/many(?) airplanes thus he has a rough idea on how much they should be. Further, he wants competition to help dictate the price. Granted Boeing has been the sole manufacture of these airplanes, but maybe another manufacturer can help lower the cost of this airplane.
On the other hand, Air Force One, probably has way more features(security) features than his airplane(s).
