Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reportedly owns a fleet of private jet including a customised Boeing 767-33A ER nicknamed 'The Bandit' worth £66m.
The billionaire purchased it in 2014 right after acquiring the Stamford Bridge club when he learnt that Hawaiian Airlines cancelled their order for the plane.
Abramovich keeps 'The Bandit' at the Harrods Aviation facility in Stansted Airport, for whenever needs it.
SunSport are reporting the special ‘bird’ and the amazing facilities it possesses - as it is described as a palace in the sky.
It boasts of a stunning board room on banquet hall where up to 30 guests can dine and wine.
There is also an office and a bedroom with a double bed. A well-furnished kitchen is also installed as part of its specifics.
Precious metals, fine wood including gold trim and chestnut are all used in making the interior of the aircraft, specially made for a man worth around £12billion.
It was also gathered that ‘The Bandit’ is the most secure and safest in the world as it is designed with the same security system as Air Force One, which transports US president Donald Trump around.
Costing around £1.5million, on board is an anti-ballistic system designed to counter any ballistic missiles fired at the plane.
Also, Abramovich reportedly does his businesses in his luxury £380million superyacht called Eclipse since he was banned from entering the United Kingdom.

The Eclipse cost £300million when he bought it in 2010, at the time was the biggest private yacht in the world.
Its upgrades and maintenance of the Eclipse built by German shipbuilder Blohm & Voss costs something close to £400million.
