First on CNN: Romney's airplane, now with logo

(CNN) - CNN obtained photos of Mitt Romney's charter airplane in Lakeland, Florida on Thursday, which now has his campaign slogan, "Believe in America," emblazoned on its side.

Until now, Romney, his aides, and reporters covering him have flown in either unmarked charter planes or in planes marked with their operators' logos.

Romney will deliver the final address at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida Thursday night and officially accept his party's nomination for president.

The plane will be unveiled at a rally for Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, Friday morning in Florida.

    Another toy that your millions can buy. I wonder if he had to tap his Cayman Islands account to spice up the plane.

    I believe in America, but you can't believe Romney because he lies constantly.

    I'm shocked he's not flying around on the "TRUMP" plane.

    Who cares? Are they strapping anyone who doesn't fit inside the plane on a crate on top of the plane? If not, who cares again!

    Believing in America means we should stand on what this country was founded on. Not red state vs blue state or black vs white. But "One Nation Under GOD with Liberty & Justice for ALL"

    We believe strongly in America which is why we will never ever vote for Mitt Romney. Nothing could be worse for America than another Republican presidency, especially one where the candidate has no moral underpinnings as is seen daily by his flip flops, distortions, and outright lies. What a sick party the GOP has become. A real shame.

    We do believe in America Mitt, just not you.... hard to trust and believe in someone who keeps secrets and cannot be straightforth. Mitt wants us to employ him without doing a background check. He has to be nuts!

    Believe In America? If you "believe in America" so highly that you make it your logo, why is your money in bank accounts in other countries? Isn't that the 1st test of how much you "believe in America"?

    Lies that you can believe in. This is a Liar. If he believe in America so much why does he outsourced jobs and put his money elsewhere.

    It's called the Rafalca, and it has a special compartment on top for the dog.

    Why doesn't he have the Flag of the Cayman Islands on his plane like does on his yacht? It would be a more apt way to ID his loyalty.

    I didn't see an American flag on the plane. Remember last time? The RIGHTWING made a huge deal about the lack of an American flag on Obama's campaign plane.

    yet another flip flop by Mitt the weathervane. When he was with Bain, he did not believe in America as he closed factories and outsourced the jobs to China. Now he has changed his mind to believe in America. Which is it Mittens? Do you even know?
