I dunno 'bout how many does His Majesty owns but I heard he now owns a B747-400.......after changing it from an A340-8000. But there's a Malaysian King of the Kelantan State who is rumoured to own a very big aircraft (could be a 747 or 767)

The Sultan of Brunei has a wasteful brother who bought the A340 (which they still have) and the 744. He also has a 100 seat jet that his wife flies on (my guess is that it's a DC-9, but I'm not sure).

I don't know about the other aircraft, but the 744 is a
-430 originally ordered by Lufthansa but not take up.

As for me, I will have to settle for my 1/500 scale Schabak fleet.
