The plane had been parked in a hangar at the Marana Regional Airport in Arizona since September of this year, according to On the Wings Aviation. It collided with at Boeing 737-700 BBJ purportedly housed in the same hangar, according to Planespotters.net.The Boeing 747SP VQ-BMS originally began its travels around the world with Pan Am Airlines in 1979, before it was transferred over to the Kingdom of Brunei and Bahrain in 1995 to perform “VIP duties.”Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took a ride in the rare Boeing in 2018, shortly after it appeared in a Forbes article featuring the lavish interior of the plane, according to Simple Flying.
