As President Elect Donald Trump’s campaigned for the White House, the bombastic billionaire jetted across America on his private Boeing 757-200 airliner. Unlike most presidential candidates, Trump already owned his own campaign plane.
“Trump Force One” — as some have dubbed the jet — was 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.
Trump’s Boeing 757-2J4ER first flew in May 1991. The brand-new airliner was delivered to Sterling Airlines, a now defunct Danish low-cost carrier. A couple years later, it found its way into the fleet of Mexico’s TAESA, also a now defunct airline. 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. The current 757 took the place of Trump’s former plane — a Boeing 727 built in 1969. The Boeing 757 is powered by a pair of Rolls-Royce RB211 turbofan engines, fits 43 passengers and has a 16-hour range.
