Hillary Clinton has a new campaign plane, but . . .


Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton put her new campaign plane into service today, taking it from White Plains to campaign stops in Cleveland, Ohio and the Quad Cities area near Moline, Iowa Illinois (I was in Davenport, Iowa from the same airport, though). The 737-800 is decked out in a white livery with the H arrow logo on the tail and the campaign slogan “Stronger Together” on the forward portion of the fuselage.

The aircraft arrived in White Plains from Roswell, New Mexico on Sunday after being pulled from storage and painted there. But, for folks looking to keep track of the campaign, it appears that following the plane might not work out so well. The aircraft registration, N881XA from Xtra Airways (callsign Casino Express, the name the airline launched under in 1989), is blocked from public tracking sites. Ouch. (The recent flight numbers, CXP8881 and CXP881 are working, but no idea how long that will last or if they keep those numbers going forward).

    1. The Trump plane is also blocked from tracking. Go find a better bullshit argument to cling to in your support of a bigoted asshat.

    1. Oops…it was Davenport I went to last time, not Moline, and was annoyed that the airport was in the “wrong” state. 😮

    1. Yeah he mentions CXP881 in his post, just says it isn’t sure we will have those flight numbers to go with the reg number going forward. But yes, she got to Cleveland just fine 🙂

  1. The plane was “pulled from storage,” but it was extensively updated, New slimline seats, divided into four cabins, and in-flight wi-fi.

  2. Both candidates have secret service protection os it makes sense that their flight paths and filings should be blocked just as is the case with AF1 and the rest of the executive fleet. If not, then there’s a significant gap in security.
