WATCH: Check Out The Donald's Plane, Trump Force One

We could get used to this.

Campaigning for the presidency of the United States is no easy task, especially during the early stages when you haven’t even earned your party’s nomination yet.

Like the election itself, it’s a non-stop, crisscrossing of the country to hit key hotspots, all the while entertaining the press.

But for billionaire real estate tycoon Donald Trump, well, he travels in luxury, to say the least.

Using a converted Boeing 757-200, Trump had the plane retrofitted in the finest of amenities to keep him comfortable on his journeys. Nicknamed "Trump Force One" – he actually has owned the plane for four years, long before his decision to try for the presidency – the plane first flew in 1991.

In fact, it was once owned by another fairly well-known businessman – Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who had it for 15 years.

Business Insider did a photo essay on the plane that you can see here, but here’s a quick video look shot by a local Myrtle Beach television station six months ago.
