Teen Who Chased Musk’s Jet Tracks Russian Tycoons

New Delhi: Jack Sweeney, the 19-year-old who drew the ire of Tesla CEO Elon Musk for tracking his private jet with his Twitter account ‘Elon’s Jet’, has launched another account to track Russia’s oligarchs.

The account “Russian Oligarch Jets” @RUOligarchJets has drawn more than 53,000 followers in a matter of days.

“The aircraft these oligarchs have are absolutely crazy,” Sweeney told Bloomberg, adding that Russia’s richest people were travelling on commercial-sized aircraft like an Airbus A319 and Boeing 737.

Colby Howard, president of Paragon Intel which provides corporate aviation intelligence through JetTrack, told Bloomberg that Sweeney’s Twitter accounts are the “People Magazine version” of corporate aviation intelligence.

Last month, Musk had offered Sweeney $5,000 to shut down the Twitter account tracking his private flights.
