The private middle eastern 777 is the lebanese prime minister Rafic Hariri private plane. My two grand fathers flew on it this year. They said it's really impressive. He also have 3 727( one for the son, one for the wife... Big grin)

That would be an incredible flight.

Guys, please pardon me if I'm sounding picky here, but I was curious about the largest corporate owned aircraft. I know there are several private and government owned 747's. (lucky bastards!  Smile)

But I was curious to know what corporation has the largest aircraft.

Also, anyone know where I can get more info on these aircraft? This may be difficult since the companies like to keep it hush-hush.

Regards, Thanks

Ok but you did not specify that. You made it sound like you wanted to know the largest corporate jet as in private owned whether be a corporation or 1 person.

LGB,

From my original post:

Outside of "air Force One" and Sultan of Brunei, whinch COMPANY has the largest aircraft?

I think I specified that. I mentioned "Air Force One" and the Sultan because I figured someone else would have.

Most corporations don't need anything larger than a BBJ. Most corporations fly Challengers, Learjets, Gulfstreams, and the like.

Cba,

I agree. I had the pleasure of working around the aircraft you mentioned above with the exception of the BBJ.

I was just curious because there are a couple out there with bigger birds. I.E. Mocrosofts 757.

Rossiya State Transport Company operates a VIP Il-96-300 for the President of Russia (currently Vladimir Putin).

There are also several VIP Il-62s out there, operating for Rossiya, Cen Sad, Gambia New Millenium Air, plus others.

not just as big as the sultan B744, but it's my favourite trijet! NMB - Minebea Corporation owns this beauty!
