Yes. Obama's newly designed campaign plane features the campaign's logo on the tail. However, an image of the U.S. flag appears on the side of the plane.

Imagine that. The flag issue you were maligning him for is proved to be a non issue just a little further down the very link you provided. Or are you now regulating how big it has to be and where? The flag on his plane also appears in the snopes link you provided.
The real question then is why do the candidates only have one flag on each of their their planes? And even if they have two flags each, then why not three? Actually why aren't the planes covered in flags? What are the candidates ashamed of? Why do they hate America?

That is alright it is just another anti-American thing to hurt Obama.
I am beginning to think he is his own worst enemy!

Miborn, you need to think this through. Registered trademarks exist as identifiers. You can be sued for using someone's registered trademark without their permission. Airlines fly people of all political persuasions. They don't necessarily want to be identified with one particular candidate. Airport personnel visually rely on the different airlines having different trademarks. If Obama had continued using the airline's logo/trademark, it would have caused problems for all involved. Obama still has an American flag painted on the fuselage. Where is the flag painted on McCain's campaign jet----oh, in almost the exact same spot as the one painted on Obama's jet. What is your problem, Miborn? You've decided that Obama is unpatriotic, so you go looking for proof of it, but when that proof is discredited, do you graciously acknowledge that you've got to keep on searching? No, you insist that you are right when ALL the evidence says you are wrong.

That company logo made use of the American flag. Since it was not Obama's official campaign plane, he painted the plane to reflect that.
He may have even been legally obligated to remove the company's logo to avoid any possible confusion at airports.
I believe it is the same flag as the one that was on Obamas plane before he took it off for his O..........

And Obama primarily used the Boeing 757 as campaign plane.... on snopes...

This plane is the Bush/Chaney campaign plane!pictured and it has the flag on the tail.... Hmmmmmm

So than let me ask why could they use the companys logo?

I don't think you know what you are talking about.....

Go back to your first post, click on your link, and READ it.

As for Bush/Cheney's campaign plane, do more research to see their campaign logo. Oh my god, it's a stylized American flag, the one they had painted on the tail of their plane!

I would care more about what is happening to our country than what is happening to our flag.

FactCheck.org: Did Obama replace the U.S. flag on the tail of his campaign plane with his campaign symbol? (http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_obama_replace_the_us_flag_on.html - broken link)
