One of the AirTanker "surge" aircraft should be outfitted in a quick-change VIP configuration. This could operate as a commercial entity - as is planned for the surge fleet anyway - but with priority given to UK government/state transport. This would be a perfect aicraft for trade visits or head of state/govt. visits providing the necessary capacity and security.

Since poor QE2 has reportedly used up all her cash savings to pay the heating bill for Buckingham (some story in a German newspaper a few weeks ago) she probably has no money to buy a jet.

A few years ago HM flew from LHR to AKL on Air New Zealand and the plane made a fuel stop at LAX. Caused some diplomatic questions as she was not on an official "visit" and did not deplane. They refueled and off she went.
