Default Royal Air Force One

Not sure what to call that official government plane, but don't like the moniker Boris' plane. Anyway, not that impressed with the 900K paint job. Looks a bit too British Airways. Any alternative ideas of how the tail could have been painted ? Some kind of royal symbol ?

you can’t expect people to come up with suggestions without the £900k upfront

Actually, I wonder how much of the 900k was paid to the consultancy that dreamed up the BA knock off design ?!

So if total cost was 900,000, a good chunk just went to designing it/consulting/given to companies of politicians friends.

While painting aircraft is not cheap, its also not a 900,000 job, well maybe it is for a government though.
