Whose Falcons Are These?

[via Mark Frauenfelder]
We’ve narrowed it down to people who own or have access to a private jet and have been known to appreciate the birds of prey. So it could be Prince Alwaleed, and we want it to be because Team Citi could use a pick-me-up in the form of an impromptu falcon petting zoo day at HQ, but it could also be someone else.  Help us out here.

    Likely the person who took this photo and released it is no longer with us, and has definitely not been rewarded with 600 virgins. More probable that the photographer was hung by his thumbs in a shower with Jerry, and then eaten by a lion.

    Photoshop. Those head things look totally fake.

    I have no idea who it is. But if I owned my own Boeing 777, I sure as hell would not be sitting on the floor

    Who is Hank Paulson for $500

    Think the more appropriate question is whose arabs are these ?

  7. WordsofPrey says:

    On a trip to the ME, I'd flown in first, where on the seat bank next to me sat an arab, with another (fully paid) first-class seat for his falcon. His wife,kids, and entourage were back in cattle-class.

    talk about getting stuck with the middle seat! wah-wah…..

      No this belongs to some prince, but not Alwaleed. This equipment is 2nd hand and was repurposed as a private jet with minimal upgrades. On close examination you will see the plane is still tricked out with commercial overhead bins. Your forgiven for the over site; obviously your still flying commercial.

      • Nay T says:

        Good observation…I too feel for the pleebs flying commercial.
        However, I would believe that it is a royal ME party that has access to the local governments air fleet and this aircraft is sometimes used for scheduled flights and sometimes is used for a higher calling.

        The service on my last flight out of Dubai was absolutely fowl.

        What we learned from Deleveraging's usage: "obviously your still flying commercial."

        "Still." As in, he once did, too. Poor fucker.
