Bombardier Global 5000 (N443PR)


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump arrives in Reno in the Bombardier Global 5000 (N443PR) of his long-time friend (and owner of the Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas) Phil Ruffin. Ruffin's private jet is captured here touching down on runway 16L at exactly high noon one week ago today.

Trump arrived here at 12:00 noon aboard Mr. Ruffin's GL5T and was met by more motorcycle police, Nevada State Troopers, Reno PD, and US Secret Service officers than I've seen for any other person except the POTUS or VPOTUS. There were several ultra-premium model SUVs also and when The Donald left the airport grounds enroute to his 12:30 campaign rally at a casino in Sparks (the city located east of Reno), driveways and intersections were blocked along the entire route. If DT rates this type of reception now, it boggles my mind to think of the way it will be if he gets elected as POTUS.
Gary, that's a beautiful photo, expertly captured... and your comment is very telling.

Greg and Dwight ... Thanks, guys. (And Dwight, "Hi" to Jordan the next time you see him. Thumbs Up)
Cliff .. Thanks to you also for your comment / compli. I was out spotting for the arrivals of each presidential candidate when they visited northern Nevada prior to the Nevada caucuses. I caught Hillary and Bernie, and then a few days later I caught Dr. C., Cruz, and Rubio one day and (as seen here) Trump the next day. As would be expected, they all had SS protection and PD escorts, but of them all, Bernie and The Donald had the grandest "processions" (lol). Every bit as grand as when Emperor Obie visited Reno a couple times in the past few years. And since it now appears that The Don is going to be the Republican party's nominee, I am literally holding my breath to see how his next campaign visit will go. :-0
Gary... thanks for the kind words. The "presidential race" season tends to bring out the jets.

I recall once seeing then presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy's Jet Commander at KGLH, Greenville's Mid-Delta Regional Airport, circa 1968, when he made a campaign visit there.

I don't (always)care who owns them, but when you can take that good of a shot, that's a rush! Thank's Gary.
