While having lunch and spotting off of Imperial highway, I saw a Saudi Arabian MD11 (I think it was an MD11 as I was quit a distance from it) parked at Lax today! I couldn't believe it. It was located off of the runways on the south side, and parked off to the side. I wondered why is was there (I've never known Saudi to have flights here, but I could be wrong). I was just happy to see it.

Los Angeles is a favorite destination for members of the Saudi Royal family. Several members of the family do own homes in the LA area bought during the Gulf War days. In addition they often like quick 2-3 day shopping trips. Saudia often operates especially in the summer months 1 or 2 flights per week on behalf of the Royal family. While at LAX the aircraft park at the Mercury FBO. Types of aircraft range from C-130's/727's to the 747SP/747-300.
