I had the occasion to see the B744 parked at CDG airport in June 1995, during the Paris Air Show; I though the sultan was paying a visit to the show to check what was the next plane he could buy. I have been told that actually he wasn't there. His son borrowed dad's plane to come and spend 3 days in EuroDisney.
At that time, the plane was wearing a plain light grey c/s and as it was the first time I saw her, I remember I couldn't fight that strange feeling of diappointement; maybe was I expecting some beautiful livery on one of the richest-man-in-the-world's plane...
