However, later down the line, Jordan got it repainted with a white, gray, and black wrap.

This color pattern could be inspired by the popular Air Jordan 3 shoe. Additionally, the plane’s tail flaunts the renowned Jumpman logo. The fabulous jet can hold up to 16 passengers, who can enjoy the beautiful interior design of the plane.
