How Mitt Romney's Plane Gets Stripped Of Mitt Romney Now That He Lost

We all know that Air Force One transports the President around but what about the presidential candidate? Well for Mitt Romney, he used an aeroplane from a small aeroplane company in Michigan who will get it back now and have to "de-Romneyise" it: strip the logos, change the seats and clean it up.

The aeroplane, a personalised McDonnell Douglas MD-83, is operated by USA Jet Airlines and needs a deep, thorough cleaning and then needs to be stripped of all its logo and re-branded. Specifically, according to BusinessWeek:

The Romney paint job — a blue belly and white top, with "BELIEVE IN AMERICA" stenciled on each side — will be stripped and painted over, likely with a mostly white coat and the USA Jet logo.

The seats could also be changed around, Romney didn't require much customisation in the MD-83 but he did add extra captain's tables. A spokeswoman says they might keep the setup the same because they don't "want to do a lot of extra work that we don't need to." Other than that, the plane goes back into the rotation of serving politicians, sports teams and bands. Pretty rough life. [BusinessWeek, Image Credit: Getty]



    Just looked it up- that's a pretty large plane... I suppose it had to be to fit in such a massive wanker.

    Is this really an article? Worth writing

      Thats what I was thinking.
      Maybe the next article will be about the hire car he used and how it needed air in the tires after he used it.

      And how does this article get a "gadgets" tag?

        It's about a plane.

          My bad...I thought it was about a plane being cleaned and refitted.
          Thanks for setting me straight Jack, off to grammar school I go

      I choose to read your comment as asking wether article exists, and then after posing the question, deciding that it was worth writing.

      Remember, grammar is the difference between helping your uncle, Jack, off a horse, and... well you know.

    well I guess the aeroplane's company gamble didn't pay off!

    Clean it up? What did he... wait, I don't want to know.

    It's almost impossible to get the smell of "whack job" out of the upholstery. This needs recycling.

    You left off that they also have to close the windows.
