Saudi Royal Yacht Was Really Saddam's Ship

It turns out a yacht we posted about a few weeks ago as having once been the Saudi Arabian Royal Yacht Al Yamamah, was in fact the property of Saddam Hussein. The yacht, which Saddam called Qadissiyat Saddam, has since been renamed Ocean Breeze and is currently on the market for $34,450,000.

When the yacht was built, all of the workers involved were sworn to secrecy, signing gagging orders.

Many suspect that Saddam, who had close links with the Saudi regime, kept Qadissiyat Saddam in Saudi Arabia for safety, in case anything happened to its sister yacht.

The 269-foot yacht has room for 28 guests and is decorated with mahogany, gold, silver and marble.

Aerion Delivers Business Luxury at Mach 1.6

Imagine crossing the Atlantic in just 4 1/2 hours. Nevada-based Aerion plans to offer that speed to business travelers with an $80 million supersonic jet it has under development. The company landed its first customer, Pakistan-based Princely Jets, after appearing at the Dubai Airshow and says it has letters of intent worth $1.5 billion. The jet will hold 8 to 12 passengers.

Aerion launched the jet in 2004 and announced last year that its market research indicated there was sufficient demand to proceed with development.

It found a market for between 220 and 260 Aerion jets over a 10-year period, with about a fifth coming from the fractional business jet market.

The company estimated that over two decades it could sell more than 500 of the jets, which it claims have the same operating efficiency as large business jets such as Global Express.
