Donald Trump is officially America’s 45th President. Unlike his predecessors, the VC-25As that serve as Air Force One will not be Mr. Trump’s first personal Boeing airliner.

“Trump Force One” — as some have dubbed the jet — was one of the most visible symbols of his run for the Oval Office. However, Mr. Trump likes to call it the “T-Bird,” according to a Discovery Channel documentary featuring the plane. According the documentary, the Trump Boeing 757 reportedly cost a whopping $100 million. Admittedly, that figure seems highly exaggerated when compared to market prices. The President has owned the Boeing airliner — registration N757FA — since 2011 and has customised the aircraft to his liking. It’s unclear what will become of the Trump 757. In all likelihood, the aircraft will be pressed into service for members of the Trump family as well as senior officials at the Trump Organisation.

Have a closer look at President Donald Trump’s personal Boeing 757-200 jet:

Trump's Boeing 757-2J4ER first flew in May 1991. The new airliner was delivered to Sterling Airlines, a now defunct Danish low-cost carrier. A couple of years later, it found its way into the fleet of Mexico's TAESA, also a now defunct airline.

In 1995, the jet was bought by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. For the next 15 years, the Boeing served as a corporate runabout for the billionaire's various interests.

In 2011, Mr. Trump took delivery of the then 20-year-old jet and added his personal touches -- at great expense.

The current 757 took the place of the previous Trump jet, a Boeing 727 built in 1969.

Although it's not the most fuel-efficient engine in the world, it is incredibly powerful. In fact, it's earned the 757 a reputation among pilots for being a bit of a hot rod.

In airline operations, the Boeing 757-200 can carry as many as 239 passengers, but Trump's plane is configured for only 43.

But if you want to watch something communally, then there's the main lounge, with its 57-inch screen TV and access to 1,000 movies.

Everything is controlled by touch screen -- even access to the President's DVR.

If you get hungry, there's also a galley.

Although President Trump's 26-year-old Boeing is no spring chicken, it's nonetheless a very impressive private jet.
