As this usually works, Trump will likely be out of office when the new aircraft enter service. I wonder if they'll keep the paint job he approved?

Eh, yeah... Its fine. Little more classic looking than the old 60's blue pastels version. And comparisons to Trump Airlines are a little overblown. Don't see why they would want to go through the whole thing again.

I think he'll be able to fly the plane as President. Given the way the Democratic field is shaping up, it is looking rather like he'll be re-elected.

Serial number 65784 has been assigned for N622UP in the FAA registry. However, the aircraft is wrongly listed as a 747-8 i.s.o. a 747-8F.

So, added to the 747 firing order : L/N 1560, 747-8F, RC686, UPS, serial number 65784, N622UP

See : https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinq...umbertxt=622UP

For correct listing of N621UP, see : https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinq...umbertxt=621UP

I still feel those 747-400ERs are being retired a bit too soon (compared to the classic 747-400). Didn't Qantas just receive them less than 20 years ago?
