, Sheikh Mohammed frequently visits the United States with thoroughbred horses transported in his fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft. This sheikh recently spent U.S. $89,000,000 buying thoroughbred racing horses in the U.S.A.
Sheikh Mohammed is described in U.C.R.’s Evidentiary Exhibits, as among the more notable falcon smugglers operating inside ex-Soviet Asia. Sheikh Mohammed is counted among the most prolific big game poachers in Africa, operating private airstrips in Tanzania that recieve his guests and equipment on U.A.E. military transport aircraft.
