The plane – which Trump refers to as "Trump Force One" – was believed to be returning from New Jersey, as Trump held a massive rally in Wildwood on Saturday.

Though the statement did not list Trump as the owner, it included the aircraft's tail number - N757AF - which traces back to Trump's plane, which is registered to DJT Operations I LLC.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump purchased the plane from Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen in 2010, paying around $100 million. Trump quickly had the plane redecorated, having "Anything metal on that plane's interior" redone with 24-karat gold plating.

Fortunately, no injuries have been reported, and it's unclear if the former president was aboard the plane during the accident.
