Trump's beloved 757 slowly rots on the runway.

Apparently, Trump can't afford to fix and fly his main plane anymore. It's sitting on a runway in Orange County, New York (60 miles north of Manhattan) out in the elements slowing rotting away.

One engine is missing parts. The other is shrink-wrapped in plastic. The cost to fix and get it flyable could reach well into the high six-figures, a price-tag Trump doesn't appear to be dealing with right now.

Well, you can tell it's a Trump product.

You never, ever, ever store an aircraft like that outdoors if you can possibly help it. If you are going to do it, you fly it to the southwest where it's warm and dry.

Sitting out there in the cold and rain, that plane will deteriorate in record time. As it sits now, it would probably take a million dollars to make it flyable, and that's just to get it someplace to really give it a good going over.

I wouldn't be surprised if the next time it moves it's going to be towed into an area and stripped for scrap.
He's probably parting the damn thing out because nobody will buy it. Seriously. It's an ancient fucking aircraft. For the price you'd pay to totally fix that thing you could probably buy a new one.
Very true. The thing that really gets me is that it wasn't flown to a proper storage area. Every day it sits out there in the New York elements it gets worse. The corrosion alone will pretty much dictate a complete engine overhaul /replacement.

But in the end it's like all things Trump: just use things up and cast them aside.

I bet he thought he'd never have to think of it again (the 757) because he had air force 1 next term and the third term again.

(hey it's trump's mind, not mine)
Makes me wonder if he was having some government mechanics work on it to fix it up but when he lost the election that ended it and that's why the plane is where it is.
He was too busy “Grifting” again as usual. He found a free ride off the tax payers while in office for free! We know how much the rich like Socialism for themselves.

And, he’ll use the plane as a tax write off some kind of way. After all he fixed the taxes in 2017 for his tax bracket anyway even better for that stuff. Not to mention all those martinis 🍸 that were had on that plane.

Just a business and campaign expenses.

Parting it out, or he’ll find a sucker fan to buy what’s left of it?
