President Donald Trump’s personal Boeing 757-200 has been involved in a ramp strike while parked at New York’s LaGuardia airport.
The aircraft, which features a distinctive dark livery with Trump’s name on the fuselage, was struck by a Beechcraft A36 Bonanza on 28 November.
In a preliminary notification the US FAA states that the Bonanza was being marshalled on a “non-movement area” – part of the airport apron where aircraft are free to taxi.
It adds that the A36 (N971R) struck the winglet of a 757-200 (N757AF). Flight Fleets Analyzer lists the operator of the 757 as Tag Air but confirms its owner as DJT Operations, a Trump-affiliated vehicle.
The FAA has not disclosed the extent of damage, if any, to either aircraft.
DJT acquired the 757-200 – a 1991 airframe powered by Rolls-Royce RB211 engines – in 2010, according to Flight Fleets Analyzer, which lists its original operator as Denmark’s former Sterling Airways.
