President Donald Trump unveiled his new redesign of Air Force One's paint job and it looks a little familiar. 

The new plan shows a plane that looks a lot less like the presidential bird we're used to and a lot more like his personal aircraft. 

ABC News said the president shared mockups of the new design with George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America."

The design shows a plane with a white top half, navy bottom half and red striping down the center of the sides -- a stark change from the light blue and white scheme that's been in place on Air Force One since the 1960s. 

Stephanopoulos said Trump designed the new paint job himself. 

“There's your new Air Force One,” Trump said, holding up a page showing multiple views of the new design, not scheduled to arrive until 2024. “I'm doing that for other presidents, not for me.”

Trump's own Boeing 757 sports a similar color scheme of red, white and blue, though his features the colors in reverse of his planned Air Force One paint job, with navy blue on the top and white on the bottom of the jet. And of course, his name is emblazoned on his personal plane.
