After his speech, POTUS worked the first row ropeline in front of the stage saying hello to the assembled crowd of Boeing employees and local officials. Crowd is a few thousand people.

POTUS then walked with Boeing leadership and Gov. McMaster towards the new Dreamliner airplane to tour the cockpit. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner followed shortly thereafter.

After 10 minutes in the cockpit, POTUS could be seen sitting in the pilot seat.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were first off the plane with Ivanka waving and blowing kisses to the crowd. Trump waved hello to the crowd still in attendance from the top of the steps of the plane, which let out a cheer.

Once off the plane POTUS said "the price is too high but we're negotiating" regarding Boeing supplying the new AF1. Of competitor Lockheed Martin he said "We love Lockheed. Great partner."

More quotes to come.
