Mexico’s Leader Sells Off ‘Too Lavish’ Presidential Boeing 787The 787-8 aircraft is headed Monday to a facility in California where Boeing can help maintain the presidential jet until a buyer is found, Finance Minister Carlos Urzua and Banobras development bank director Jorge Mendoza said in a message to reporters in Mexico City.
