Could you help me with a little project? I'm trying to track down celebrity/famous people/business leaders' private aircraft, both Bizjets and GA.
I'm not on about those you can already find on FAA or similar, rather those that are hiding under pseudonyms or finance companies; e.g. Oprah Winfrey = Harpo Aviation etc.
Spotting logs or pictures would be ideal, perhaps we could make a gallery of them?
PS: A particular interest in motorsport drivers/team personnel

Hey dont forget that Lewis Hamilton is the brand ambassador for Lear Jet. How cool is that decision? He signs up in Montreal at the beginning of June right before the Canadian Grand Prix, goes out and wins it, then calmly goes on to win the US Grand Prix the following weekend. I bet the Bombardier Exec who signed that deal is feeling pretty pleased with himself!
