The Boeing 767-33A of Roman Abramovich

Said to be Russia's richest man, Roman Abramovich made his money mainly during the privatization of Russia's oil industry and from a private investment company called Millhouse Capital. However, he is possibly best-known outside Russia as the owner of Chelsea Football Club, and his private Boeing 767-33A is a common site at Luton Airport some 40 miles north of London, where Abramovich spends much of his time. The 767's sleek but understated paint job belies an interior reportedly outfitted with chestnut and decorated with gold. Although the 767-300ER makes a huge private jet, Abramovich may be upgrading soon to something much larger: he is widely reported as being the customer for an Airbus A380 superjumbo that Airbus recently said had been ordered privately.
