10. Don't be silly. AF1 is a 747, not a stealth fighter

It’s probably the most recognizable aircraft in the world. If a foe is close enough for gunfire, it isn’t doing to hide with blue paint... and any other weapon system doesn’t care what color it is.

The plane’s existing coloring is because Kennedy told the designer that he liked blue. The AF was originally going to give it a bright orange forward section with a black nose.

(Of course I mean “the planes that most often serve as AF1”)
