Say what you will about Donald Trump, but the man knows how to travel in style.

On Saturday, supporters in Iowa were treated to a show when the billionaire’s plane, Trump Force One, did a fly-by before landing at the Dubuque Regional Airport.

As the Boeing 757 swept low over the crowd, “oohs” and “ahhs” could be heard from excited fans. The theme song from the movie Air Force One played on the loudspeaker. It was pure theater. It was Donald Trump.

According to the New York Times, at the beginning of his speech, Trump announced that he would let small children run through the plane while he spoke. However, adults were kept at bay because according to Trump, “parents will damage it.”

So for the rest of us who will never get to run through the aisles of Trump Force One, here’s a look inside the over-the-top plane.

The first thing you’ll notice is the ornate decor inside of the private plane. After Trump purchased the aircraft, he had the seat belts and pretty much everything else plated in 24-karat gold.

The plane has 43 seats, a far cry from the typical Boeing 757, which seats 180 to 200 people.

With all the extra room, the plane is divided into several common areas including a dining room, VIP seats, and a main lounge that comes with a 57-inch TV and state-of-the-art sound system. If you don’t want to watch TV with everyone else, note that each individual seat also comes with its own personal entertainment system.

Trump’s bedroom has a queen-size bed, gold silk on the walls, and pillows decorated with the Trump family crest. The master bath has a shower and a 24-karat gold-plated sink … of course.

According to a survey conducted by Yahoo Travel, Donald Trump is the candidate people least want to sit next to on a plane.

Something tells us that won’t be an issue. There’s no way Trump is ever flying commercial with a plane like this.
