Donald Trump’s “Trump Force One” was on the move between Florida and New York, United States (US), as the former US President was set to appear in front of a court in New York. 

The Boeing 757-200, registered as N757AF, departed Palm Beach International Airport at 12:59 PM local time (UTC -4) to fly to New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA) on April 3, 2023. The narrow-body jet arrived at LGA several hours later, landing at the airport at 15:31 PM local time (UTC -4), according to ADS-B Exchange data. 

Trump arrived in New York to face court due to an indictment regarding allegedly fraudulent payments made during the 2016 election campaign to Stormy Daniels, a porn star with whom the former President allegedly had a brief sexual relationship. While Trump has denied that fact, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has claimed that they met once in 2006. 

“This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s Office for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal. Guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected,” read a statement by the New York County District Attorney’s spokesperson on March 31, 2023. 

DJT Operations, the operator of the Boeing 757-200, took delivery of the aircraft on June 1, 2011, according to data from ch-aviation. It was first operated by Denmark-based Sterling Airways, with the Danish airline taking initial delivery of the aircraft on June 7, 1991. The cabin was changed to VIP configuration by Vulcan Northwest, which acquired the aircraft in March 1995, according to data.
