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 customized the aircraft to his liking. Have a closer look at Donald Trump’s personal Boeing 757-200 jet:
10. Although The Donald may be the jet’s current owner, he wasn’t its first. In 1995, the jet was purchased 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, Trump took delivery of the then 20-year-old jet and added his personal touches, at great expense.
9. The Boeing 757 is powered by a pair of Rolls-Royce RB211 turbofan engines. 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.
