As Donald Trump’s campaign for the White House kicks into high gear, the bombastic billionaire will be jetting across America on his private Boeing 757-200 airliner. Unlike most presidential candidates, The Donald actually owns his campaign plane.
“Trump Force One” — as some have dubbed the jet — will be one of the most visible symbols of Trump’s run for the Oval Office.
Trump has owned the Boeing airliner — registration N757FA — since 2011 and has customised the aircraft to his liking.
Have a closer look at Donald Trump’s personal Boeing 757-200 jet.
Trump's Boeing 757-2J4ER first flew in May of 1991. The brand-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, another now-defunct airline.
In 1995, the jet was purchased by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. For the next 15 years, the Boeing served as a corporate runabout for the billionaire's various interests.
In 2011, Trump took delivery of the then-20-year-old jet and added his personal touches, at great expense.
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 hotrod.
In airline operations, the Boeing 757-200 can carry as many as 239 passengers, but Trump's plane is configured for only 43.
However, if you want to watch something communally, there's the main lounge, with its 57-inch screen and access to 1,000 movies.
Although Trump's 24-year-old Boeing is no spring chicken, it's nonetheless a very impressive private jet.
