I think Microsoft usually uses Vulcan Northwest's 757s, N756AF or N757AF. I guess you'll find out!! Let us know what comes in next week. The777Man

N297MC G4 4/5 - 6/5
N8CA G5 8/5 - 9/5
N75RP G5 8/5 - 10/5
N982J CL601 8/5 - 10/5

Thats what I know so far. I hope a private 757 does come in. As for Clinton I guess just a UA, CO or CX first class seat.

Its very hard to get pics of the biz jets because they land on the other runway to all the pax aircraft. If you want a biz jet or freight you have to sit at the departure runway and wait.

The777Man, doesn't Bill Gates use its Gulstream V (N531AF) anymore?. The last time he was in AMS he used this one.

Bill Clinton visited AMS some weeks ago and used a KLM flight to arrive in AMS, allthough he left The Netherlands in a leased Hawker 800XP.

Does anyone know what flight/airline Clinton flew to HK? Did he fly a US carrier (UA, CO, NW) or did he actually fly CX?

Bill Clinton did most likely not fly United Airlines to HKG from what I could see. As far as Bill Gates, I'm not sure. Vulcan Northwest is owned by Microsoft's co-founder whose name excapes me at this time. But I've heard that Bill Gates uses Vulcan's 757s sometimes. The777Man
