WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A big upgrade for the presidential campaign of Chappaqua resident and Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton was on display at the Westchester County Airport in White Plains on Sunday.
Clinton, who has traveled mainly by private jet during the campaign, will now be using a Boeing 737 that is large enough to allow for members of the press to also travel aboard the aircraft for the first time in the 17-month old campaign.
The jet is scheduled to depart Westchester later Monday morning for campaign events in Ohio and then on the border of Illinois and Iowa. The 737 is 14 years old and was manufactured in the United States, according to CNN. It was previously used by Air Berlin, CNN said.
Clinton will be seated up front in the plane, with press assembled in the back. Secret Service agents will be stationed in between.
The plane, colored with white and light blue, is adorned with the campaign slogan of “Stronger Together” and logo “H” logo on the tail.
