The Sultan of Brunei is scheduled to visit Japan this weekend according to the following article http://asia.news.yahoo.com/070612/kyodo/d8pn9hcg0.html

This might give me a chance to spot his A340 in Royal Brunei colours:

although it is possible he will fly something else.

The question is where (likely HND) and what time? Is anyone able to help me find this info? I tried flightstats.com but as expected, nothing was there. Anybody in the know?

Thanks,

CinJA

I always wonder why the Sultan's A340 is in Royal Brunei colours while the B744 is in the gray colour scheme? I also wonder how its decided which aircraft he is going to fly on. I would love to see the interior of the B744. I have seen it many times at LHR parked near the BA maintenance base.

If you would love, i would pay $$$ to see the interior, we share the same interest

He always use the 747 for his offical visits, even the non-offical vists to LHR & DXB. I see his 747 quite often in DXB

Considering time difference and flight time from Brunei, the arrival at HND will be mid-afternoon or later. The highest probable aircraft will be the 744.

Only the bottom part is gray.

For an official state visit, highly likely that V8-ALI would be used.

I wouldn't be so sure. On his last official visit to Australia, he used the 762 V8-MHB. I'm betting on the 342 although no one can know for sure.
