What would a Texan Air Force One look like? Gov. Abbott has an idea

Everyone knows about Air Force One, the Boeing 747 that is used to transport the president.

Everyone also knows that Texas was once its own country, and many of its residents have never forgotten that fact. Obviously, such a nation would need a plane to transport its leader around, and, this being Texas, the plane would have to proudly proclaim its Texan-ness.

So what would a Texas Force One look like?

Clearly, it would have to include the Texas flag. And the “Don’t Mess With Texas” slogan.

Don’t worry, Governor Greg Abbott has you covered.

Gov. Abbott tweeted what appears to be a Photo-shopped design of the would-be plane Monday afternoon, with all of the above design features and more.

Many Twitter users added their take on what they would want to see on (an entirely hypothetical) Texas Force One.

Personally, we’d like to see some more of the things we love about Texas represented on the plane: Some art dedicated to Willie Nelson, and maybe some bluebonnets. And you can’t forget Lone Star, the National Beer of Texas, although endorsing alcohol on a presidential plane might be a bit murky.

Who knows, if this thing actually happens, maybe Hollywood will make a movie about it, like with “Air Force One.”

What about you? What would you want to see on a Texas Force One?
