Qatari VVIP 747 Put Up for Sale

In the market for a private jet? After being used by the Qatari royal family for over 20 years, a Boing 747 private jumbo jet has been put up for sale.

The jet is being sold by private jet charter and management company Book A Jet for an undisclosed sum. However, according to The Daily Mailexperts believe the jet is worth about $26 million. In the listing, Book A Jet described the sale as a “unique opportunity to purchase a truly remarkable Boing 747 private jet.”

The jet has a wingspan of 195 feet and a height of 65 feet. It holds 89 passengers, including seats in first-class, business-class, and tourist-class sections. According to The Daily Mail, the jet was one of 45 special performance models first made in the late 1970’s, and is one of only 12 still being flown. The jumbo jet, which is based in the U.K., is typically stationed in the Bournemouth Airport in Dorset, but makes frequent flights to Qatar, Zurich, and Paris, according to Doha News.
