Former U.S President Donald Trump is currently airborne from New York’s Newark and is heading to Washington for his arraignment. Follow live.
He is flying onboard N757AF, his own private jet, known as “Trump Force One”, and was the jet he used to use frequently before he was President as well.
It is understood that he is heading to Dulles, where he will then travel by car to the courtroom for his arraignment.
N757AF is 32.2 years old at the time of writing, having started out life with Sterling Airways of Denmark back in June 1991, as per data from Planespotters.net.
From there, it was passed on to Mexican carrier TAESA in July 1994 before being handed over to Vulcan Aircraft in March 1995.
It remained with Vulcan until being handed over to Donald Trump in August 2010.
Trump is being charged on counts of plotting to overturn the 2020 U.S Presidential Election result.
