A Saudi Prince sent a Boeing 747BBJ to Paris to pick up the new signing for Al Hilal, Neymar, who has left PSG and flew to Riyadh earlier today.
HZ-WBT7 was the Boeing 747-400 that took the famous football player from Paris’ Le Bourget down to Riyadh, which is where Al Hilal is based.
As per data from Planespotters.net, the aircraft was originally delivered to Air China in 1992 as B-2466.
From August 2001, it was handed back to Boeing, and then handed over to the Kingdom Holding Company.
According to sources, this particular aircraft belongs to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud.

The video footage shows above Neymar boarding the Boeing 747BBJ in Paris’ Le Bourget ahead of his flight down to Riyadh with Al Hilal.
He signed for Al Hilal within the last week, picking up a lucrative contract seeing his wages paid at £2.5m per week.
This means by the time he has completed his first year at the club, he would have made a staggering £173.8m.
The Saudi club purchased the player for around £77.6m, with some additional perks as well.
It is understood he has been given four Mercedes G Wagons and a Mercedes van, as well as three luxury sports cars from the club.
That isn’t all. He has apparently been given a property that has 25 rooms and a swimming pools that is at least 10 metres large and 40 metres long, as well as his own private jet too!
