RIP – AHMED BIN ZAYED AL NAHYAN


EXPIRED: 03/26/10 – Ahmed bin Zayed al Nahyan, 41,  was an Emirati businessman and Managing Director of the world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund. Last year Forbes magazine ranked him as the 27th most powerful person in the world.

No longer.

He was one of several sons of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and in 2007 was appointed the Under Secretary of Ministry of Finance and Industry for the United Arab Emirates. Prior to that he was the Interior Minister.  He was also known for being a charitable guy and sat on the Board of Trustees for the influential Zayed Foundation for Charitable and Humanitarian Works.

With all that work, a guy needs to relax. And bin Zayed al Nahyan knew how to play just as hard as he worked.

This guy was fly! Or at least he tried to…

bin Zayed al Nahyan went missing when the ultralight aircraft he was learning to fly disappeared in Morocco. While the crumpled aircraft was found in a lake, his body was only recovered from the crash site days later.

Interestingly, the Spanish pilot, his flight instructor Julio López, survived the accident and was quickly rescued.

Sometimes the hired help have all the luck. But no matter how much money you’ve got, when it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go.
