HILLARY CLINTON UNVEILED her new campaign jet during the week.

The Boeing 737 bears her campaign slogan ‘Stronger Together’ on the sides and features the US flag towards the tail.

The new plane, like her 2008 variety,  has been dubbed ‘Hill Force One’ and has space for the press corps following her.

For months, Clinton broke with campaign tradition and flew separately from the reporters who follow her around the country.

The new plane has plenty of space for journalists though and Clinton took some time to chat inside her new jet.

The plane is a far cry from that of her Republican rival Donald Trump, however, who released a video back in 2011 that showed exactly how he flies.

Trump bought the plane from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen for around €100 million but later gave it a major gold-plated makeover.

Trump’s plane features a guest room, and entertainment system and even a private bedroom complete with family crest.
