I'll make this short & sweet and right down to the point.
This afternoon I was on the Metropolitan Golf Links course which is adjacent to the main road that leads to the maiin terminal at OAK. I guess it was the 5th or 6th hole, I can't remember, but I saw a 727 parked on the general aviation ramp where all the small lightweight A/C are parked as well as the business jets and what-not. The 727 was painted in Kingfisher's livery. I have no idea what a Kingfisher A/C would be doing at OAK unless the airline acquired it from someone here and had it painted and worked on or if it's some type of special charter perhaps. If I had my camera I would have taken some picstures of it but I had a very busy day and we had to leave rather early from Mill Valley to get to the gol course b/c of the bad traffic going through Berkley and Alameda along 580.
So why would a Kingfisher 727 be here? Why does Kingfisher even have a 727?

Yah, It's Vijay Mallya's personal aircraft. So, he's had it repainted in Kingfisher colors like his ACJ (which I think is in for mods so probably why he's using the 727), I had thought he got rid of it.
