WASHINGTON — The U.S. commander in chief is one step closer to stomping in his Air Force Ones after the Air Force on Friday awarded Boeing a contract for the two 747s that will be converted into presidential airlifters.

In a statement, the service opted not to reveal the value of the award, which came as a modification to a 2016 contract for risk reduction efforts with Boeing, because “price and other related details are commercial-competition sensitive” — meaning it could affect the company’s future deals with commercial airliners and other presumptive customers.

However, the Air Force was reportedly able to save a substantial amount on the future Air Force One planes because it purchased aircraft that had already been manufactured, but never delivered, to the original buyer — in this case, the bankrupt Russian airline Transaero.
