It is stunning – just stunning, and certainly the most magnificent 747 ever built and it could be yours for about US$400 million.
Actually, the price is confidential but you know the saying if you need to ask the price you can’t afford it!
But $US400 million would be a good guess for this opulent beauty.
The magnificent 747-8 belongs to the Qatari government and only has 1,100 hours on the clock and importantly just 269 cycles on the engines.
For the record, it was built in 2012 and is currently located at AMAC Aerospace in Basel Switzerland.
It is fitted out for a crew of 18 and 89 very well connected passengers.
Amongst the appointments are; master bedroom in the nose, guest bedroom, living rooms, lounges, offices, nine lavatories, and five galleys.
