As Donald Trump continues to hint at running for the US Presidency in 2024, his son has announced that his VIP Boeing 757 private jet is back after an extensive refit.
Writing on Twitter, Eric Trump announced “SHE’S BACK,” as a video unveiled the word “TRUMP” plastered across the plane in gold writing.

Writing on his Truth Social app, the former President said the plane 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!”
The Boeing jet, dubbed Trump Force One, was frequently used as a prop for rallies during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. When he became president, he switched to using the president’s official Boeing 747, Air Force One.
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen previously owned the 31-year-old jet. The plane was decked out with 24-karat gold fixtures and seatbelt buckles by Trump.
In March, Trump PAC sent a fundraising email to supporters advising them about a new ‘Trump Force One’ jet, after a plane he was traveling in was forced to make an emergency landing.
“Before becoming the greatest President of all time, I traveled the Country in my plane, known as Trump Force One,” he wrote in the email.
“The construction of this plane has been under wraps — not even the fake news media knows about it — and I can’t wait to unveil it for everyone to see,” the email read.
The email did not directly ask potential donors to contribute money for the construction of the plane. But it included several links to a donation site asking for recurring contributions of up to $2,500 a month.
