747-430 Is Lufthansa?

That's Lufthansa customer code. The V8-ALI is a 430, too. What's that? Did he buy it from LH?

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

I had the occasion to see the B744 parked at CDG airport in June 1995, during the Paris Air Show; I though the sultan was paying a visit to the show to check what was the next plane he could buy. I have been told that actually he wasn't there. His son borrowed dad's plane to come and spend 3 days in EuroDisney.
At that time, the plane was wearing a plain light grey c/s and as it was the first time I saw her, I remember I couldn't fight that strange feeling of diappointement; maybe was I expecting some beautiful livery on one of the richest-man-in-the-world's plane...

The Life of the Rich and taste-deprived !!!

That is one hideous, gaudy monstrosity. Makes one of Donald Trump's glitzy, ugly buildings look downright tasteful.

Wonder what kind of TP the Sultan uses on his plane for his royal posterior....
