There’s actually an interesting story about the B757. It was the President’s airplane for decades. Bought originally by President Miguel De La Madrid (A hilariously corrupt man who also bough dozens of other planes for the government) it was also in service for Salinas, Zedillo, Fox, Calderon, and Peña Nieto.

At the height of the drug wars, Calderon video recorded a message to his family in the case he was murdered in that aircraft en-route to a hospital’s inauguration in Tamaulipas. He was told by intelligence officials that a “credible threat” to his person was made, and that it would involve the presidential airplane being destroyed.
