WASHINGTON: US President-elect Donald Trump was regularly seen using his luxurious private jet for travel during election campaigns, but hardly everyone knows the cost and lavishing interior of his boeing.
“Trump Force One” — as some have dubbed the jet — has been one of the most visible symbols of his run for the Oval Office. Trump likes to call it the “T-Bird,” according to a Discovery Channel documentary featuring the plane.
‘Hollywood screening room’
According the documentary, Trump’s Boeing 757 cost a whopping $100 million. Admittedly, that number seems a bit exaggerated when compared to market prices.
The Republican presidential candidate has owned the Boeing airliner — registration N757FA — since 2011 and has customized the aircraft to his liking.
‘Luxury with latest technology’
Powered by Rolls Royce engines, ‘Trump Force One’ has 24-carat gold plated seat belts “as well as everything else”.
In his bedroom, Trump has wood panelling, “yards and yards of elegant silk” and pillows embroidered with his family crest.
The video lounge has a 57-inch screen and sound system similar to a “top Hollywood screening room”.
