Quite the surprise arrival at Sky Harbor this afternoon..  Not something often seen at Sky Harbor, that includes the type of aircraft and this particular paint scheme.

Wow, great catch, I wonder what it was doing here, I doubt it will be a regular although it would be pretty sweet.

My bet - some Sultan or Emir is at Mayo.....

Did it show up on FlightAware?  Or was it a completely unlisted flight?

It was not on flightaware.  There was a ton of security around the plane, and a fair amount escorting the entourage as it left the airport.

No idea on its planned, or unplanned, departure date.  Would be great to catch it leaving too!

I think it's the same sheik/emir that comes for cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic out here, the one that usually brings the 747SP.  The Sultan of Oman used to come to PHX a lot for the same reason - he came in an SP as well.

Thanks, it would have been nice to get more of the Air France logo, but then it wouldnt have been as head on, tradeoffs.
