washington - The US Air Force agreed on a Boeing contract for two phones for the president on Friday. Two Boeings 747-8 replace the outdated 747-200 aircraft, currently serving as Air Force One, reports CNN.

There are two commercial devices built for a Russian airline. Because Transaero Airlines went bankrupt before the aircraft were delivered, the two Boeings stayed on the ground. The aircraft builder was able to find a new buyer in the US government.

The deal is to the satisfaction of President Donald Trump, who earlier expressed his displeasure about the cost of a hail new presidential plane. 'Delete that order,' he said on Twitter. It is expected that the aircraft can not be used until 2024 after all adjustments.
