I can't believe that no one has mentioned this one yet! One of Donald Trump's helicopters (before becoming President), a Sikorsky S-76B, has the registration G-TRMP. It made many appearances during his 2016 election campaign. I'm sure that A*Net probably has pictures, and you can find more information about this helo here . . . http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/G-TRMP.html

I was browsing FlightRadar24 one evening (serious avgeek moment) and I noticed a Virgin Australia 738 with an ‘out of sequence’ registration. When I Googled it, I found it was a special registration to acknowledge Brett Godfrey, the co-founder of the airline.

“Then Virgin Blue general manager public affairs Heather Jeffrey announced at Brett Godfrey’s May 2010 farewell function that the airline’s next aircraft then due for delivery would be named Brett’s Jet and be registered VH-BZG, with BZG the initials of Brett and his wife Zahra Godfrey.”

It has since had a name change, under the existing registration.

N194WM has always been pretty cool after I learned how it became (Bill and Melinda Gates were married in January of 1994, hence the 1/94 and "W" for William and "M" for Melinda).
