Today, I visited the "musé de l'air et de l'espace".
As saw this B747/400 parked on the tarmac, I could not see the registration, it looks like a VIP 747. Who does it belong to ?

The plane belongs to Waleed Bin Talal, a very famous Saudi businessman and one of the worlds wealthiest men.Thats his latest plane, on top of a A340 and a B763 though im not sure if he still has both those.Kingdom Holding is the name of his company.

The other B747 in the full Saudi Airlines colours is a part of the Royal Family's fleet.The 2 planes have nothing to do with each other.

Hey,

I got to get on this plane the last time it was at Dallas Love Field for some "warranty work". Words cannot describe the plushnish (is that a word?) of this plane. The plane had about $300 million, I think, in refurbishments when the plane first came into Associated Air Center. If I remember correctly, the plane came from Air China. They spent $1 million on just the carpeting alone. It is 50% wool and 50% silk. The IFE has about 1500 movies "on-demand" and in the back of the plane are about 48 business class seats, as the man who owns it takes about 48 people with him on each trip.

It is TOTALLY pimped out !!  Smile We just weren't allowed to take any photos of the interior of the plane..........

When you first walk on board the plane, there is a place for a podium and this is where the Koran is normally placed. Above this podium in Arabic writting is some type of saying such as, "Allah is good and I worship Allah, therefore Allah should bless me and give me more $$$$" Or something like that. We heard that definition from some of the workers who were working on the aircraft. The plane is just totally beyond description inside.

I would be happy to share a photo with you I took of it taking off from Love Field on its way back to Paris, which was its first destination of the jet's journey back to Saudi Arabia.

I've tried uploading it to this site and the other site, and the photo gets rejected for being "back-lit". It is a killer shot, right at rotation. You'd think that it would get some "special" consideration since it is kind of a rare shot. Not a lot of private 747-400's in the world.

e-mail me and I'll be happy to send it to you and anyone else who requests it.

Marcus and the other person below who requested the shot, send me an request via an e-mail to jaydavis8@comcast.net

I'm having e-mail problems so I'll have to send it via the comcast server, not my normal Outlook express channel.

I've sent it to four other people this morning as well.

Going to church right now, then going golfing. But I'll send it to you later tonight when I return from golf.

Guys,

"please" read my post.

I'm having e-mail problems BIG TIME !!

e-mail me the request and I'll send it to you.
I've already sent it out about 8 times...........

I am not going to "compose" e-mail and send to the people who have
posted on this thread.

Sorry. You do not want me to send you e-mail right now from my
Outlook Express, it is majorly messed up. I can send it via the 'Net if and
ONLY if you send me an e-mail first. Sorry !!



Jay
