From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

(CHICAGO) Barack Obama's campaign unveiled a newly painted and refurbished 757 plane tonight, just an hour before the traveling press corps is to depart to meet up with Obama on his trip to the Middle East and Europe trip. Obama will not to be on the debut flight of his new plane; as he is currently in the Middle East.

The official campaign plane has the words "Change We Can Believe In" written across, while the tail is fully clad with the campaign logo on it. The inside of the 757 was refurbished with new carpeting and brand new leather seats for Obama and his staff.

Currently 40 members of the press and 20 staffers are aboard the campaign plane and en route overseas.
