Flying The Rolling Stones 

A recent article posted at SimpleFlying.com about the Boeing 767-300 leased by The Rolling Stones for their 'No Filter' tour beginning in 2016 started me wondering what I could find out about aircraft that they have chartered during their long career.
However, I could not find any info prior to their 'Zip Code' tour of 2014. Surprisingly, it seems that one of rock's most legendary bands has had quite simple taste in their choice of aircraft; almost modest by rock band standards.
The one constant on their leased aircraft is the famous 'tongue' logo applied to the fuselage. They have used a series of B-737's, including SX-ATF leased from GainJet Aviation of Greece, until switching to a B-767-300 (ZS-NEX) leased from Aeronexus Corporation of South Africa.
This 31-year-old aircraft was delivered to LOT - Polish Airlines in August 1990 and is still in service.
