Sands and Their Little Jets

AE7I7958.jpgThe casino business is obviously a bit of a money-spinner (well, for almost everyone who owns a casino!).  In Las Vegas, the casinos put a lot of effort in to keeping their big money players happy.  Sands has a fleet of aircraft that they use for moving these clients to and from their operations.  Big jets are a part of this.  They seem to focus on jets that can be customized nicely but aren’t terribly high on the acquisition cost scale.  The two that I was most interested in were the Boeing 747SP and the Airbus A340-500.  Both of these are cool looking jets as far as I am concerned and the Sands livery suits them well.  Sadly, I have not been around when either of them flew but I have seen some great shots of them airborne.
