OT: Donald Trump's 757 at Dyce

Saw this today thought it was worthy of a post.

Donald Trump is in Aberdeen today to check on the progress of his golf course at Menie Estate.

Apologies for the picture quality, was taken on my Blackberry.

Ahhhh yes, thanks for posting. Iv seen some mention of this bird over on another forum.

It's always nice to see a 757 in the uk, something that is sadly becoming more and more rare since the BA birds were wfu.

However only yesterday I spotted that dhl air uk acquired another 757f that will go onto the uk register.

I thought the livery said "THUMP" not "TRUMP".

I could put up with it sitting inside!

This reminds me of a sailing acronym "RAF" Row Away Factor.... meaning, when you row away from your yacht on its mooring do you look at it and go Aaaaah, loverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrly. woof woof (etc). Yes I know, if you had a yacht that pricey you would not be rowing!

I tend to agree with you Genius1, this has a low RAF!

Interesting that his 757 has a glass cockpit installed, akin to the 777.

Looks rather gaudy inside - too bling bling for my refined taste. Kind of like Emirates F

I love how the reporter says 'the plane has a Rolls Royce engine'. I hope it has two.

Sometimes I wonder why these people are employed as presenters, when they invariably have all the presenting skills of a wet fish.

$100,000,000 for this used refurb 757?

I seriously doubt it.

My parents always said "Those with money, you will never know - Those without money flash it all over like they have it" need I say more 'bout Trump. Certainly a gaudy plane inside and out - he sure knows what pimpin means though.
