I think Donald Trump's plane is one of the hardest to get a shot of in motion. He always seems to leave or come in under darkenss. Only Orn Peel, I think, has been able to get him in motion at LGA.

If you ever see this thread with "Updated: date" that emans I posted a newly registered flight plan for the Trump plane so we can all try to get it coming in or leaving.

I just got notified that VP-BDJ registered the following flight:

Aircraft Type B721

Went down to the airport and didn't even see Trump's plane there, but the flight tracker says it hasn't departed yet.

More frustration added to the curse!

Not sure how often Trump Jet usually moves, but the next season of The Apprentice is filming now (and has been for the past couple weeks) so it might be flying around a bit more for the show.

I have not seen the Don fly in a while but this afternoon (Tues 6-7) VP-BDJ departed 31 at LGA
around 1545. Since the flight tracker I use does not show this one maybe Phil D can check and
see where he is headed.

i was driving through the post down by AA on saturday and heard some engines running from the E ramp. it must have been trump's 727, but i didn't have the time to go over to the other side to check it out. there were about 2 gulfstreams and a handful of other airplanes on the rmap, none that could ahve been nearly as loud as the 727.

maybe the pilots just wanted to stay current so they took a shoort hop in the airplane. you have to do three daytime and three nightime landings every 90 days to stay current on any type of airplane.

PhilDernerJr
06-08-2005, 11:46 AM
Trump is flying today (Wednesday) to Toronto at 1:58pm and come back to LGA at 4:52pm.

Each flight plan has already been changed once each, so I wouldn't doubt if these were delayed even more again.

LGA777
06-08-2005, 12:45 PM
Phil, any chance you are reading Zulu Time instead of local. When I went by Planeview Park on the M60 bus at around 1215 and looked
over towards the MAT no Trump 727. Then about 1325 lcl / 1725 Zulu VP-BDJ landed on 22.

LGA777

PhilDernerJr
06-08-2005, 01:13 PM
Ron, you are correct. The tracker I had made no indication that I was in fact reading Zulu time.

The plane flew to and from Toronto today and as you, returned at about 1:19pm local.[/i]

That makes sense. The blowhard himself was in YYZ on Wed on some trumped-up real estate deal downtown. He's been here a few times recently. I should think to head to the airport when he's in the local news.

The only Trump noise worth listening to is the whine from the 721 Pratt's..... :)

06-16-2005, 04:51 PM
And 30 mins after VP-BDJ landed Super 727-200W N31TR landed on 22, have not
seen this one here in a while but she used to be a frequent LGA visitor.

Futterman
06-16-2005, 07:19 PM
I just got back from the Vaughn observation deck...no photos, but saw both 727s and about 30 aircraft lined up for 13. Was incredible.

Hey, Ron, how far was the lineup for 13 going down Alpha?

The guy I was talking to told me that N31TR actually had to perform a go-around...insane. I just missed seeing Trump by 45 minutes. Damn!

I believe 31TR was here in late April, if it's the same plane I'm thinking of...


Brian

LGA777
06-16-2005, 07:49 PM
I missed the go-around so I guess when I saw 31TR land it was attempt #2. The line
for 13 at its peak started about kilo on alpha eastbound, all the way down to the Delta
Terminal then westbound on bravo. This also happened on Sunday. pretty common this
time of year ! And BTW 31TR made a beautiful takeoff around 1930L

Well folks I have not seen VP-BDJ at LGA since late June and I believe DT is in town which draws me to two
conclusions. Either the Boeing is undergoing heavy MTC somewhere or its being parked at another airport for now,
maybe JFK or HPN. Comments Welcome !

she's not at HPN. flew up there today and couldn't for the life of me find here. most likely she's undergoing heavy mx... but where?

08-11-2005, 08:54 PM
well i stopped at both HPN and SWF today. VR-BDJ is not at either airport. i was going to fly over JFK and head back to FRG off of the canarsie VOR but i was unable to get that clearance... shall try again next week.

PhilDernerJr
08-11-2005, 09:04 PM
According to flight trackers, he flew to Jacksonville on June 26 and hasn't flown since.

What's going on down there? Maintenance facility or something maybe? He's not getting a new plane, is he?

cancidas
08-12-2005, 01:12 AM
i sure hope he's not getting a new bird... we'd definately miss the 727 at LGA.

PhilDernerJr
08-12-2005, 01:21 AM
What if he gets an L-1011 and keeps it LGA? I'd much prefer that. lol

Maybe Ron has an idea of what's goin on down in VQQ.

LGA777
08-12-2005, 10:00 AM
I can't help but wonder if this has something to do with the day they where in position on 13 a few months ago, cancelled takeoff clearance and returned to the ramp with a MTC problem and did not depart later.

If Trump is getting a new plane my guess is a BBJ which would sure look nice in a scheme similar to his 727.

And I don't know if any MTC or Overhaul facility in JAX, there is one at Lake City, Florida (LCQ) approx 100 miles to the west but I think there primary function is repainting. I know US and UA have both used them in the past.

Dave Lu was out there with me at Herman MacNeil Park. I called Senga and asked him to track it for me, as it was 4pm and already late. Senga said that according to the tracker, it had still not even departed yet. So I came home.

So it seems like the plane has been in Jacksonville for two months. Probably received some serious maintenance, and maybe even a paint job. Perhaps we'll see a new paint scheme!

It was nice. While not what I envisioned, I had wanted to get Trump's plane in action for some time now. From here, I want to do it again in nice weather or something a little more presentable.

The tracking will not stop!

jakbar
08-29-2005, 07:01 PM
The tracking will not stop!

Is the tracking done through RedOne? It sounds like you're able to track Trump's plane more easily than, for example, The Spirit of Delta because his plane is not commercial. I still want to find a cheap way of tracking specific commercial registrations (other than calling the airlines with questions); I don't want to pay out the nose for one of those high-priced flight trackers. Anyway, I digress...

I'm all for getting a shot of the plane in action in nice weather! :)

I'm new here, just came over from Airliners.net

I'm an A & P tech graduated from the College of Aeronautics at LGA. (Right across the GCP from LGA) and in the testing stages of getting the A & P certificate.

The college of Aeronautics has a tower which is a excellent view for final's going to Runway 4 and even has the tower's communication (receive only)


she's not at HPN. flew up there today and couldn't for the life of me find here. most likely she's undergoing heavy mx... but where?

Donald Trump's 727 has been to HPN a few times before. I go to HPN for private pilot training and see his 727 in the middle of the airport. It's parked between two runways, hard to see from the airport unless your in it.

ATA does come to LGA once in a while with a L-1011.

Donald Trump used to have a L-1011 but it was scrapped after he got a quote for a C or D check because it was in the millions. It was sitting in a yard scrapped then sold to World Airways. The last picture I seen of the L-1011 of Donald Trump's, it was stripped of engines, doors, gear and flaps.

No it doesn't.

While I can't say if one has NEVER been here, I can certainly tell you that no L-1011 from any airline has been to LGA in many years.

For the record in my 20 years at LGA I have NEVER seen or heard of ATA bringing an L-1011 to LGA. They where only operated at LGA by DL,EA, TW with AC operating them occasionally during irregular operations, last time I saw one was in 1988, the 762,763 is AC's irregular ops aircraft of choice now !

Yes they did. I saw it only once from the college of aeronautics tower.

I can confirm it's a L-1011 by it's unique tail and 2nd engine duct and I'm 100% sure. If I had a camera, I would have taken a pic of it.

It landed on runway 4, it was between the year 2003-2004

Reg is N163AT

And I have been at the college of aeronautics from 2000 to 2005 with nothing better to do at lunch and breaks other than going to the tower and watch planes take off and land.

Heard a very interesting story about Trump the other night. A friend is a retired Grumman engineer, and still active with their historic society, as well as the FRG historic society - he's set up the displays of photos & model aircraft in the terminal.

Back in December, the crew from The Apprentice" were at FRG for a day of shooting. They took over the terminal building, since they really liked the historic photos and such, but moved in some very plush furniture and stuff, and filmed scenes for the show. Apparently, the highlight of the day was the 5 (!) low passes the Trump 727 made over the field for film purposes. He said they pissed off much of the Farmingdale neighborhood doing this.

He said they were told the scenes would be shown some time in February, but no specific date. I don't watch the show, but now I may need to set it up in the VCR.

I'm watching the Apprentace right now, looked like a beautiful day for shooting pics of this plane...too bad none of us were there! They showed one of the low passes, shot from another plane in the air, you could see the shadow on the ground and everything. It looked freakin awesome.

The brief cabin shots did not reveal much about the interior but the two framed paintings on the bulkheads, I thought looked out of place on an airplane. I liked the way DT mentioned parking his 727 near the end of the runway at LGA was great advertising for him ! If you missed it Monday night or tonight another CNBC rerun at 9:00P and 12:00M this Sunday night Mar 5th, the scenes with the magnificent Trump 727 all take place in the first 10 mins !
