The US presidential candidates touched down at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas ahead of their final TV debate
DONALD Trump and Hillary Clinton had an awkward airport encounter after their starkly different-sized campaign planes were spotted parked side-by-side ahead of their third and final US presidential debate.
The US presidential hopefuls, who touched down at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas on Tuesday, appeared to have a plane face-off ahead of tonight’s debate.
The Republican nominee’s personal Boeing 757-2J4ER – measuring 155ft – believed to be slightly smaller than the Air Force One, shared the same tarmac as Clinton’s 129 ft jet – the Boeing 737.
Known as Trump’s gold-plated flying office and home, Trump Force One is powered by Rolls-Royce RB211-535E engines to fly for 16 hours and can go more than 500 miles per hour.
Dubbed Trump Force One, the billionaire’s luxury aircraft, which has “TRUMP” on its side, a dark blue and white paint job with red trim, boasts ornate decor and dazzling details including a marble bathroom.
It even has a dining table for ten and two walk-in closets, a spacious lounge with a 52-inch flat screen TV.
The jet, which once flew with a commercial airline in Mexico in the 1990s, was bought by Trump from Microsoft mogul Paul Allen for an estimated $100 million (£81 million).
Trump’s plane, although larger in size, only seats 43 compared to Clinton’s 96-seater commercial aircraft.
Clinton’s Boeing 737-86J, nicknamed Hill Force One, is estimated to be worth $96 million (£78 million).
It was first issued in 2002 for AirBerlin but she’s leasing it, according to Journal News.
The Democratic nominee’s jet features baby blue trim and the phrase “Stronger Together” on the side, along with her “H” logo on the tail.
Her jet is split into four sections – one for Clinton and top aides, one for campaign staffers, one for her secret service detail and one for reporters.
The interior is nothing fancy but does boast Wi-Fi.

It will be the final time the pair will meet before America votes for their next President and comes just days after Trump’s wife, Melania, defended her husband against the growing chorus of sex allegations.
Their last meeting which was held on October 9, was the first time the pair met in public since a video in which Trump is heard bragging about how his fame allowed him to “do anything” to women was released.
Clinton said Trump’s own aggressively vulgar comments about women had revealed “exactly who he is”
Answering for his words for the first time, Trump denied that he had ever kissed and grabbed women without their consent.
He said repeatedly that his words in 2005 were merely “locker room talk” and paled in comparison to what he called Bill Clinton’s abuse of women.
Ahead of the debate, the businessman met with three women who accused the former president of sexual harassment and even rape, then invited them to sit in the debate hall.
