After Mitt Romney has officially accepted the Republican Party's nomination for president this evening, he and his running mate Paul Ryan will stay one more night in Tampa. Friday, they'll begin darting around the country on new customized airplanes.

ABC News' description of the official campaign planes:

The customized jet, a McDonnell-Douglas 83, is emblazoned with the Romney-Ryan logo. Vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will also get his plane — a DC-93.

The planes are  Operated by USA Jet Airlines, a Belleville, Mich.-based private charter company that has provided its jets to other political candidates, sports teams, celebrities and bands like U2.

Both planes are currently being held at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Lakeland, Fla. They'll be unveiled tomorrow.
