President Zuma, the current South Africa leader and his BOEING 747-8

zumaHe has purchased the most expensive aircraft in the world for his own personal use and those of his hirelings and underlings. Boeing 747-8 for President Jacob Zuma. Welcome aboard the custom-built plane that makes Air Force One look like The Wright Brothers’ first effort.

The custom-built Boeing 747 is believed to have cost South African taxpayers  $400million. Making it one of the most expensive purchases of all time. The jumbo jet would normally carry up to 600 passengers – but this version was built for just one insane man, although he will be able to fit dozens of guests.

No need to fight for sofa space either, just the 14 TVs dotted about the vessel. More sleeping space is provided in the “aeroloft” on the top deck of the vessel, with eight double beds for passengers who prefer to get some shut-eye on flights.

zuma-plane001You know it’s good when your plane has a stateroom. Look out for this baby flying above you.

Does the United States of America provide aid to South Africa? Yup – over $571,000,000. Just enough to pay for this toy, with a little change left over. Isn’t it heart-warming to see how our “Foreign Aid” is benefiting the underprivileged of other countries, while our own Veterans and Senior Citizens can’t get decent medical treatment or health care!


May all your days be sunny ones .. Wyn
