Aircraft owned by famous people
« on: August 28, 2010, 09:41:12 PM »
In my daily log I saw that a private jet belonging to a famous US celebrity had landed at Luton which got me thinking whether there is a list of aircraft owned by famous people.

I came across one website which is mainly US focused (http://www.celebrityaircraft.com). I was wondering if there was anything else out there for UK/Europe.

Perhaps people could add to this thread any celebrity-owned aircraft they are aware of.
Here’s a few I know of:

VQ-BLA – Lakshmi Mittal, UK richest man. Based at Luton
G-EVLN – Part of the Rothschild family
M-FINK – Former Man Financial boss Stanley Fink
P4-MES - Roman Abramovich (767)
N900MV - Michael Bloomberg (Falcon)
N699HH – George Hicks (Liverpool owner)
VP-BDJ – Donald Trump (727)

As per my original posting earlier in his thread, the problem with the celebrityaircraft.com website is that it is mainly US based.

Would be great if people could post any non US owners they know of.
