|Me and The Donald. His jet is tidier than his office|
If you’re into airplanes like me you’ll want to catch the second season premiere of Mighty Planes. it takes off Sunday night at 8 p.m. on Discovery.
The first episode is all about Donald Trump’s tricked out 757, an aircraft that makes Stephen Harper’s new bird look like a Sopwith Camel. Trump’s ride is one of the largest private jets in the world. Newly refurbished, it has all the excesses you’d expect. The 230 passengers seats have been replaced with plush leather couches, mahogany trim, a comfy bedroom and 24-carat gold-plated sinks and seatbelts.
The episode follows Captain Dunkin as he readies the plane for a trip to the U.K. There’s the usual “Can we make it there on time?” nonsense, and part of the episode is an infomercial for Trump’s seaside golf course in Scotland, but propheads will want to get on board.
One other note: the plane, unlike its owner, does not have a retractable lid.
