Over the last few days I've seen three different Sauda Arabian planes at Newark. On Friday they brought in a 747-200, Saturday a L10-11 (sigh  Smile ), and yesterday a MD-11. Last I heard they do not have regular service into Newark. Does anyone have any information about why they are bringing their planes to EWR! They do have one of the best liveries out there!

SV Planes are often use by their King and it`s family, maybe he was on an shopping tour to NYC.
Also the Kings private Planes have the same livery.

N.P.M.

Thanks TWA for the info. But would the king use such large planes for his travels? And three different types?
Thanks though!

IIRC, there was an AIDS conference at the UN sometime last week and perhaps he attended. He uses so many planes to transport all of his staff and equipment. Also, I do believe that his family does not fly on the same plane as him, for safety reasons. Or is that (the deceased) King Hussein that I am thinking about?

I think the King or Prince is doing a annual shopping Big grin at New York. They need a BIG aircraft to fill all the stuff they buy!

They might bring some secruity guards along with the King or Prince.

Schools out, the country shuts down and everyone goes to party! But are you sure that it was a B747-200? They only have one and that has a regular service to JFK.

Steph,

We had this conversation before and you didnt listen to me then, Sad OCV isnt operated by SARF, neither is HZ124 or HZ123 (Which I actually understand is grounded) or any learjets. And where did you get the information that HM1B is a flying hospital! (look at its tailnumber history)

HZ-HM1B is listed as a Mobile hospital in the new JP.
To my knowledge there is no HZ-HM1C. Where did this info come from?!?
The other Saudia vip 747SP is HZ-AIJ.
