The thread has been moved to the Polls Forum. Anything "biggest and largest" belongs here.

Last I heard, Gabon had (has?) a B777. These aren’t business jets, they’re government planes and operate under state rules. I don’t think there are more than a handful of airliners larger than 737s privately owned. Las Vegas Sands is certainly the largest operator of private airliners—747SP and an A340 plus smaller ones

I believe the Air China 748 VIP is actually B-2479. At least according to Planespotters.

List of other earlier 747 VIP airliners
Morocco 747-400 CN-RGA acquired 2020 via Royal Air Maroc which first flew it 1993
Brunei 747-400 V8-ALI acquired new 1992 and stored at MZJ in 2018
Oman 747-400 A40-OMN acquired new 2001
Oman 747SP A40-SO acquired 1984 but first flown by Braniff 1979
Saudi Arabia 747-400 HZ-HM1 acquired 2006 for 2011 service but first flown by Saudia 2001
Saudi Arabia 747-300 HZ-HM1A acquired new 1983
Dubai 747-400 Combi A6-COM acquired 2008 but first flown by Air Canada 1991
Dubai 747-400 Combi A6-HMM acquired 2017 but first flown by Air Namibia 1997
Dubai 747-400 A6-HRM acquired 2003 but first flown by United 1998

Bahrain 747-400 A9C-HMK acquired new 2003
Kingdom Aircraft/Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal 747-400 acquired 2005 but first flown by Air China 1992

Despite low hours/cycles assumed:I am guessing
1) it's possible that Brunei's 744 is or will be a parts donor
2) the longevity of the Saudi 744 and 743 is waning
3) Oman's 747SP may be sunsetted after nearly 40 years

The 748-8 bought by the Saudis was never taken up and the cabin never modified. It sits in Basel Switzerland since 2012 in green state. Its registered to Bank of Utah Trustee under number N458BJ. Could eventually be modified for VIP use (could look great in Dubai or Bahrain) but as time marches on maybe a spare parter for USAF's two new AF1s?

Japan had 2 747s for VIP use - I recall seeing them at Heathrow when the Emperor came to a party for Queen Elizabeth a few years back. According to wikipedia they were replaced by 777-300ERs in 2019.

Those two Japanese Air Force 1's were 1992 744s and very low hours/cycles. They were bought by CSDS Aircraft Sales and Leasing and at least one is for sale. CSDS also bought a former Qatari VIP 747SP that is for sale.

Sadly, it may finally follow the beautiful Bahrain -SP into retirement..... :old:



This reminds me of CAAC's 747-SPs and why one was not assigned as their VIP aircraft instead of the allegedly "bugged" 767? :scratchchin:


It could have been magnificent in that role! Too decadent for the party's taste? :spin:

Apparently...they did use one occasionally on state visits...but the old livery just suits that mission better. :camera:


Not sure if they also flew the -SPs for those trips before they replaced the flag on the tail with Air China's logo. :redflag:
