    Let's throw another variable into this mess: Saudi Arabian is taking delivery of a new 777 in a couple days, so they could be flying people over for that.

    Anyway, it's still possible that this is NOT the plane he's on and he's on some other interesting private jet, but the chances of seeing the SP now seem slim to none.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Senga is, and always will be my ninja-spotter bet.
    Have you ever seen a grown man naked?

    Problem is, you may see the photos on his Flickr stream before you and I get to see the plane...

    He's a rumor, recognizable only as deja vu and dismissed just as quickly. Anonymity is his name, silence his native tongue. He's no longer part of the System. He is above the System. Over it. Beyond it...

    Last time I saw Senga was during the Lufthansa A380 inaugural flight, maybe it was just a blur (one second he was there and then the next second he was gone). I think he has Harry Potter's invisible cloak.

    I tell you, I have the same picture of Martin Air 747, same spot, time, location etc. I never saw him... Last time I saw him was at The Mounds for the German A340 gov't plane during UN Week...! ...and it was a pleasure of course.

    Fasil, Nick and I were at Inwood Park for Singapore last week and this old Benz rolls into the lot just before the plane hits finals, guy gets out with "equipment", but instead of coming towards us he steps down into the reeds and pops back up onto the foundation of one of them huge electric transmission towers to get his shots. As soon as Singapore was in he walked back to his car, I said hello without even knowing it was him, but that was a cool stealthy thing he did. That's the way to be in my book...in and out like you own the place and no one asks any questions....

    ?? It says it is Saudi, not MEJ .. nice looking bird. But it can't be, Senga has not posted a picture of it on his Flickr stream yet

    EDIT: This article claims he should arrive by Wednesday... is he coming by cruise ship? That's a long delay in Oman.

    Apparently the 747SP is headed towards LAX today:

    As far as I am aware President Saleh is still in NY for treatment... Should be interesting to see where the aircraft goes after LAX.
