  • The US Air Force are replacing two of the five chiller units on the plane currently used by President Donald Trump

Boeing was awarded nearly $24 million to supply two new ones.

The refrigerators have been on the plane since 1990, when Boeing first gave the Air Force the customized aircraft.

"Trump is spending $24 million on a new fridge for Air Force One". This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, is the contracting activity (FA8106-17-D-0002/FA8106-18-F-1002).

Homeowners, take comfort: even the appliances on Air Force One break down. That means storing about 3,000 meals in massive refrigerators and freezers below the passenger cabin.

"It's not a contractor issue; it is a requirements issue", Richard Aboulafia, a vice president at the Teal Group consulting firm, told the defense and national security news site. Numerous contractors that work on the presidential jet also must maintain high-level security clearances.

The Defense Department sent out a notice in late December explaining that Boeing "has been awarded a $23,657,671 contract for engineering support services for VC-25A G12/G13 chillers, including prototype design, manufacture/procurement, installation, and the testing of one prototype".

Although the new fridges will use standard industry technology, they have a unique capacity to provide about 70 cubic feet of cold storage, meaning crews will not have to re-stock for extended periods of time.

The US air force needed two new "chillers" for the presidential jet, which has five on board. Air Force spokesperson Ann Sefanek says the units' "reliability has decreased with failures increasing".
