Trump’s 757 Flies Low Pass And Wows The Crowd

It’s the final weekend of campaigning in Iowa before the nation’s first primary of the 2016 Presidential campaign.  Republican and Democratic candidates for president are criss-crossing the state to make one last push to garner support ahead of the state’s caucuses on Monday, February 1st.  Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pulled off one of the more unique entrances to a rally at Dubuque, Iowa on Saturday.  Utilizing his personal 757-200 aircraft, the jet performed a low-pass in front of the assembled crowd, then entered a left-hand pattern before landing on the runway.  Upon landing, Donald Trump exited the 757 to a cheering audience with very presidential-like theme music playing in background.

About Trump’s 757-200 Private Jet

After the speech, Trump offered tours of his jet to children who were gathered at the rally.  The aircraft is one of the more unique private aircraft.  Registered N757FA, the Boeing 757-200 first flew with Sterling Airways in 1991.  Trump acquired the aircraft in 2011 to replace his aging 727-100 aircraft.  The 757 features a private bedroom, a suite of media entertainment options and gold plated seat belts and fixtures.  His jet has first class seating for up to 43 people. For reference, a typical 757-200 seats between 175 and 200 people in a 2-class configuration.
