The famous 757 that Donald Trump used as a private citizen has taken him all over the country. With midterm elections and a possible announcement for 2024 coming up, the Boeing plane went back to Mar-a-Lago, ready to take the former president all over the country and be used as a backdrop in a hangar party.
Even though the plane was mostly inactive while Trump was president because he flew Air Force One, it has been given a new lease on life and looks ready to take off, just like Trump’s return to politics.
Eric Trump, one of the former president’s sons, posted a video of part of the rehabbing process on social media last July.
SHE’S BACK!! “During my four years in the White House, I didn’t use everybody’s favorite airplane, the Boeing 757 we campaigned on for our big 2016 WIN. Now it has been completely modernized and renovated, and looks GREAT, all done in the Great State of Louisiana, and coming back to the skies in the Fall of 2022, or maybe sooner. Get ready!” – President Donald J. Trump
CNN was one of the first news outlets to report on the updated and freshly painted private jet, which looks ready to be used again as a big prop for public appearances and a convenient way to get to campaign stops and speaking engagements:
According to flight data studied and analyzed by CNN and aviation experts consulted by CNN, Trump’s jet has spent several hours over the last week running pattern flights above a small airport in Lake Charles, Louisiana, likely testing various updated components before heading to the Palm Beach International Airport, where it arrived Wednesday evening. Trump has previously indicated that the plane would be in Louisiana for repairs.
The plane’s arrival in West Palm Beach comes less than three weeks before the 2022 midterm elections and with the political world on constant watch for Trump to announce another run for the White House. While Trump’s world has felt under siege with multiple
CNN also gave a description of the private plane, pointing out that its normal commercial layout had been changed to fit the Trump family’s flying needs:
A standard passenger Boeing 757-200 series has about 228 seats. Trump’s custom 757 features 43 seats – along with a main bedroom, guest suite, dining room, VIP area and custom galley. Trump has mainly flown to-and-from various destinations on his much smaller, eight-seater, 1997 Cessna 750 Citation X. That plane does have a small Trump-family crest painted on the fuselage but lacks the giant Trump name on its outside.
Former President Donald Trump says the Boeing 757 he used with great fanfare during his 2016 campaign has been refurbished and is ready to hit the skies by the fall. https://t.co/7BfpiBAzKu

The sight of the famous Trump plane is sure to get people even more excited and rile up people who are already upset. Even CNN’s news anchors couldn’t help but say that the plane’s return to West Palm Beach was a sign of bigger things to come in one of their shows.
After the midterm elections send a loud message about how bad the Biden administration’s policies were, it seems like Donald Trump would be in a good position to run for president in 2024. Since one of his biggest and most visible namesakes was just given the green light to take off again, it would make sense.
