One of Sheldon Adelson's many planes. He has two 747 SP's.



Another cool plane while I'm at it.

When ever I see 747's up close, be it on the ground or taking off, I can't help but think that something that big should not be able to fly.

@Brewer79 - i feel you on that like when you see a c130 take off (esp off a carrier with JATO rockets) you just get that feeling like is it going to make it?

Do they remove alot of the chairs for the private 747? I can imagine that this has the square footage of a small house!

I haven't been in any of his planes but I'm told it is outfitted like a flying lounge.

I remember watching a C-5 take off in Iraq...I've never seen something so big move so quick and climb at such a steep rate of pitch. 737's don't look like much, until you see one jetting in front of you in a near miss from the cockpit of a C-130...
