Rather than copy and paste all those links again I've been lazy and copied liks to 4 topics from July 2012 at Stansted when numerous VIPs / heads of state and so on arrived for the Olympics (amazing to think it was nearly 4 years ago). I spent an obscene amount of time there filling my boots (or at least my memory cards) and these are links to some of my posts from the time, many of them fit the bill for this topic but there are a quite few non government aircraft as well but as they are quite exotic I'm sure you wont mind looking at them as well.

These are all great, thanks for posting (I have a soft spot for government transports). Out of interest, it would be even better if the locations and (approximate) dates could also be included. I realise not everybody has the time to do that though.
