Jack Sweeney, a 19-year-old known for tracking Elon Musk’s aircraft, has now claimed that he has discovered Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s new private jet and has begun tracking it, Business Insider is reporting.

The teenager, who has also shared a picture of the jet on Twitter, has tracked Zuckerberg in the past as well. In February, Sweeney began tracking and sharing updates on Zuckerberg’s private jet on a @ZuccJet Twitter account.
In April, however, Sweeney found out that the aircraft was no longer being used by Zuckerberg. He has since been able to draw a correlation between the latest jet’s travel history and Zuckerberg’s trips.
In Meta’s latest SEC filing, the company mentioned chartering a new aircraft for Zuckerberg. The jet is owned by the Facebook CEO and operated by an independent charter company, according to the SEC filing.
In its filing, Meta said Zuckerberg’s security team has identified several threats to the Facebook founder.
“We believe that Mr. Zuckerberg’s role puts him in a unique position: he is synonymous with Meta and, as a result, negative sentiment regarding our company is directly associated with, and often transferred to, Mr. Zuckerberg,” the filing said.
Earlier this year, Musk expressed concern over the account Sweeney created to track his personal travel. The Tesla CEO also offered the teen $5,000 to take down the @ElonJet Twitter account, but Sweeney rejected the offer.
