According to a book I own (Airliner Color History:Boeing 747-400)
"It is registered V8-AL1 (Alpha Lima One) but Is confused with V8-ALI (Alpha Lima India)"
but I woudn't be too sure these books get it wrong all the time, all other aircraft in Brunei are registered V8-xxx not V8-xx# (x representing any letter, # representing any number) according to airfleets it is registered V8-ALI (Alpha Lima India). So I'm not quite sure myself

Not true that all aircraft of the Brunei Royal Flight are registered V8-XXX and not V8-XX#. Some of us may recall a B727 painted in Royal Brunei colours and registered V8-BG1 or V8-BG2 (possibly both).
My understanding is the V8-AL1 is the correct one (1 denoting its designation as the Sultan's primary vehicle during state visits). Would love to hear it from someone who could say with certainty.
