US President Donald Trump has reached an agreement with Pyongyang, the world's largest aircraft maker, to build $ 3.9 billion worth of two Air Force One planes.
A spokesman for the White House announced the success of negotiations with the company in providing more than 1.4 billion dollars of taxpayers' money in the United States.
The deal came after much debate over the high cost of manufacturing new presidential jets. Trump spoke of this after his election and before taking office officially, and declared his dissatisfaction with the high cost.
Pyeong said in response to the latest agreement that Trump was "negotiating for a good deal".
"Pyong is proud to have built the second generation of the Air Force 1 and to provide the heads of America with a white bird house that is reasonably priced for taxpayers," she said in an official statement.
An official source at the company said the agreed cost includes supplying the 787-8 with advanced communication equipment, internal and external ladders, a huge kitchen and other equipment.
In addition, there is a fundamental change in the structure of the new aircraft in order to provide permanent protection for the President and with him for a long time in the atmosphere without the need to get to the ground, according to the official.
It can be said that the planes were designed to serve as a seat of government or a white bird house, which could fly in the worst security conditions such as a nuclear war.
The US government has reached agreement on building two planes and possibly more. But Trump chirped on Twitter in December 2016, rejecting the deal. "Boeing is building a 747 Air Force One presidential plane for the next presidents, but the cost is out of control of over $ 4 billion," Trump said.
After this twinkle, the White House appeared to question the figures Trump mentioned, saying it did not reflect the fact of the contract between the Pentagon and Pyong.
Even after the announcement of the new agreement has not been confirmed so far from the figures mentioned by Trump and provide more than $ 1.4 billion in the new deal.
Technically speaking, the term "Air Force One" is called any aircraft carrying the US President of any kind.
However, this term is often used to refer to two specially designed Pyeong 747-200B aircraft that have been in service since 1990.
One of the most prominent features of the presidential plane is that it is equipped with secure and advanced communication equipment, consisting of three levels, allowing the president and his assistants to move freely on board in an area of up to 400 square meters, and there is a presidential suite, special places for his assistants, special protection forces, With a medical wing equipped with advanced equipment and operating room, a permanent doctor on board, equipped with all services and two kitchen kitchens that can accommodate 100 people at a time.
