Donald Trump’s private Boeing 757 jet is ‘broken’ and sitting idle at New York airport

Former President Trump’s personal Boeing 757 is sitting idle, at an Orange County, New York airport, unable to fly.

The passenger plane that bears Trump’s name in large block letters has fallen into disrepair. One engine is shrink-wrapped and the other is missing parts, according to the CNN.

The jet was 20 years old when Trump purchased it in 2010, back into flying shape could reportedly cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.




Mr Trump is yet to use the plane after leaving office in January.

Trump’s Boeing 757 was a staple during his 2016 presidential campaign. Since becoming a private citizen, he’s been flying on his smaller 1997 Cessna 750 Citation X corporate jet, the report said.

Trump’s current jet can seat nine passengers comfortably.



“Flying the Boeing 757 could be a huge financial strain. Parts availability is becoming a challenge so operating costs go up. The cost can go anywhere from $15,000 to $18,000 per hour. Most airlines are retiring the 757 since more cost-effective models are now available.”

Trump’s Boeing airliner, which includes a master bedroom, a 57-inch television and 24-karat gold seatbelt buckles, can comfortably fit 43 passengers.
