Watch Trump’s Private 757, You’ll Know He’s Ready To Give Up The Presidency

President Trump has been flying Air Force One for the past four years, but still owns a Boeing 757-200 known as ‘Trump Force One’ that he acquied in 2011. The seatbelts, and everything else, are gold plated.

The ever-vigilant Jon Ostrower notes that the aircraft, registration N757AF, has been stored at Newburgh-Stewart airport in New York for over a year, and the aircraft will need maintenance to bring back into service.

When Trump is ready for the plane to become airworthy again in order to fly him as a private citizen, it’s going to head to a Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) company in Lake Charles, Louisiana. It hasn’t been kept in service, according to an insider Ostrower cites, because the President didn’t see a reason to spend the money when he might not need the aircraft for another four years.

Prior to acquiring this Boeing 757, for 14 years the President flew in a 1968 vintage ex-American Airlines Boeing 727 reconfigured with 24 seats and a bedroom, dining room, and conference rooms.

  1. @UA-NYC:

    I am mature enough not to engage in a discussion with an ill-mannered adolescent who needs a time out.

    Go back down into your parents’ basement and come back when you grow up.

  2. Insulting and besmirching people willing and needing to wait in food lines in this year of massive American unemployment unlike anything witnessed in the US since the Great Depression? Sounds like something Trump would do, so can’t say I am surprised Trump’s fans are cut from the same cloth and can’t reconcile with the reality that having a relatively new car doesn’t make a person wealthy or even otherwise able to easily put food on the table for themselves and/or their family. There is a lot of food insecurity in America today and going hungry usually comes before losing the home and the car when insolvent.

  3. @1KBrad – for your claim on people in food bank lines, you are hereby granted the Ahole Of The Week Award!

    You aren’t worthy of any further conversation.

  4. Why do you keep allowing this juvenile jacknut to start food fights in the comment section of your travelblog?

  5. The “tolerant left” (unless it involves evidence against those with left ideology) is an oxymoron. They fail to realize that their derogatory comments and unlawful actions say more about them than the intended point.
