Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kim and Kanye in private jet
Las Vegas Sands 747SP
As we can see they’ve hired one of the Las Vegas Sands 747SP’s for their trip.
Las Vegas Sands have 2 747SP’s in their luxury fleet.
VQ-BMS 747SP c/n 21649, previously with Pan Am and United Airlines.
VP-BLK 747SP c/n 21961, previously with TWA and United Arab Emirates.
As you can see in the video Kim really likes the stylish 747SP. She gives us a tour of the inside and really enjoys it.
I’m not sure if they only used the 747SP for one trip or if it was for a part of Kanye’s tour.
Please comment below if you have more details like when and where they flew.
That video is over a year old, from November 2018. The Sands aviation 747SPs are not available to hire, they do not have a charter license. The 747SP in the video is VP-BLK, she underwent an interior refurb and update with the design work done by Edese Doret in 2011/12: https://edesedoret.com/aviation-b747-sands
VQ-BMS has come out of a similar upgrade/check this year at the new Sands maintenance/upgrade facility.
Thanks for the additional info! I knew the video was a year old, but still worth sharing.
Loved the link and the photos of the interior.
Lots of action lately, both Sands 747SP are back in air and up to date on all checks. VQ-BMS last seen flying in and out of LAX earlier this month.
VP-BAT, now N7477S, has not gone into the shed yet for paint and maintenance, she is parked over on the dirt at MZJ near P4-SFH. P4-SFH needs replacement parts for the landing gear so is effectively grounded. Some details here: https://www.beaconjournal.com/news/20190918/bob-dyer-ernest-angleys-plane-might-be-goner
