Everybody knows about John Travolta being a enthusiastic pilot who owns a B707 and others. But what about the rich and famous around the world, what kind of an airplane do they own? And, do you know if they flight themselves?

I came up with a short list. Help me out with this one to get it larger.

•President of the USA ... B747-200
•President of Mexico... B757-200, B737, Learjet
•Emperor of Japan... B747
•Sultan of Brunei... A340
•Donald Trump... B727
•Carlos Slim... Gulfstream V, Dassault Falcon 900
•Queen of England... BAe 146
•Michael Dell... B757
•John Travolta... B707, Grumman 1159
•Bill Gates... Bombardier 700
•Michael Jordan... Beech 300
•Steve Jobs... Gulfstream - G-V
•Brad Pit... Cessna 210
•Opra Winfrey... Bombardier 700
•Olegario Vázquez Raña... Bombardier 700

This is discussed many times. You may distinguish state owned (presidential) aircraft from private owned ones.

See for the first: Head Of State Aircraft (by RickYHM May 23 2007 in Civil Aviation)

I like Roman Abramovich's private B767-3ER:

May I add that he also has a 762 and a 744, used to have 2 A342s now only one, and also had an A310 and 747 SP, but they were all sold.

Former Prime Minister of Lebanon Rafik Hariri owned several jets, including a B777-200.

IIRC, Tom Cruise owns and flies a P-51 Mustang.

And on a side note, the heads of state you listed don't own those aircraft, except maybe the Sultan of Brunei. Their respective nations own them and whoever happens to be the head of state at any given time has use of them.

Speaking of golfers, Greg Norman also owns several aircraft and flies them. At least one is a helicopter which he lands on his yacht's helipad.

Since when does MIchael Dell own a 757? Anyone got pics? I don't think I've ever seen it at AUS unless he flies into some other airport.
