Skift Take

After Election Day, the work of tearing down a presidential campaign begins. Field offices are dismantled. Bunting and balloons are junked. And a small company in Michigan gets back its airplane.

Since the end of the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney has toured the country in a personalized McDonnell Douglas 83, where the tail fin sports his logo and the headrest on his seat is embroidered with “The Gov.” The plane is owned by USA Jet Airlines, a subsidiary of privately held Active Aero Group, with headquarters in Belleville, Mich. Before another client can fly tail number N949NS, it must first be de-Romneyized.
