Yes I believe this to be true.
Since the old 17/35 runway was closed the 747`s have been parked on there.
The rumor is that the cost to park an aircraft of that size is about a 10th of the cost of parking at heathrow.
The rumor about the owner of VP-BAT is a new one.
It is owned by a very rich Oil Tycoon ( operated by worldwide holdings) from the middle east but I'm not sure about his wife.Regards
