After four years of collecting dust, Donald Trump’s iconic Boeing 757 is being “fully restored and updated” and will take to the skies by the end of the year, the former president said in a statement.

Reports have been circulating during previous months regarding the restoration of Trump’s plane. It was stored in New York while the 45th president has been traveling on smaller jets. New reports suggested in March that the jet needed substantial repairs to its engines. Those reports noted that it could cost several hundred thousand dollars to repair the jet.

But with “upcoming rallies” in the works, Trump is footing the bill to bring the plane back into commission. It was used as a backdrop at countless 2016 rallies.

“Many people have asked about the beautiful Boeing 757 that became so iconic during the Trump rallies. It was effectively kept in storage in Upstate New York in that I was not allowed to use it during my presidency,” Trump said in a Friday statement via Save America PAC.

With reports saying the plane is in bad shape, the repairs will likely be sizable. Trump said the blue jet with his name in large white letters will receive an “inspection and updating of Rolls-Royce engines, and a brand new paint job.”

Details on the rallies this jet may carry the former president to have not been released but this statement confirms rumors that Trump is planning to host events soon.
