Want jet-set chic? Then sex, style and 18-carat gold seat belts are essential. Supermodel Melania Knauss[now Mrs Donald Trump] is the launch pad for 14 pages of high living
Enter high-spirited Donald Trump to show us how it’s done. The billionaire New York property magnate, Reform Party presidential candidate and proud owner of this custom-fitted 727 (even the seat buckles are 18-carat gold) is an expert in the art of in-flight entertainment.
