Donald Trump’s $100 Million Personal Airliner



Donald Trump’s personal Boeing airliner, dubbed "Trump Force One" by some, will be one of the most visible symbols of his run for the Presidential chair as he’ll be jetting across America during his campaign. Trump’s Boeing 757 cost $100 million and is fully customized to his liking.
Let’s take a look at it.
 
Although "The Donald" may be the jet's current owner, he wasn't its first.

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, 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.

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.
