THE U.S. teen who ruffles the feathers of billionaires by tracking their private jets says he’s pinpointed Mark Zuckerberg’s aircraft.

Jack Sweeney said Wednesday that a Twitter account he created to monitor the plane’s whereabouts is now “completely accurate”.

He shared a picture of the jet on his personal account.

The 19-year-old made a name for himself after Elon Musk in January offered him $5,000 to shut down an account that tracked his jet.

In Twitter messages sent to Sweeney, the Tesla chief expressed concern that “some nutcase” might shoot him out of the skies.

The youngster declined Musk’s offer. He uses data from public flight records to run accounts that keep tabs on the likes of Musk, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos.

Sweeney’s account that tracks Zuck’s jet, @ZuccJet, was set up in February and has 7,000 followers.

In April, the tech whizz said he had learned that the aircraft was no longer being used by the Facebook founder.

He said on Twitter that he has since been able to nail down the latest jet’s flight number based on its travel history and Zuck’s trips.

Meta, the company that owns Facebook, said in a recent regulatory filing that it had chartered a new jet for its CEO in March.

It reportedly spent $26.8million on Zuckerberg’s security and private jet travel in 2021.

His company pays for 24/7 bodyguards and has installed bulletproof glass and a panic button in his office in Menlo Park, California.

MUSK NOT IMPRESSED

Musk was not impressed when he found out a 19-year-old had developed a Twitter bot to keep track of his private jet’s movements.

In late January, Protocol reported that Musk sent the teen a DM asking for him to take down the account, branding it a “security risk”.

Sweeney responded: “Yes I can but it’ll cost you a Model 3 only joking unless?”

After a few messages back and forth, Musk asked how much Sweeney made running the account.

When he revealed it earned him no more than $20 a month, the world’s richest man made an offer of $5,000 to delete the account.

The teen pushed for more, demanding an extra zero on the end.

“Any chance to up that to $50k?” he said.

“It would be great support in college and would possibly allow me to get a car maybe even a Model 3.”

Musk hit back that he’d think about it, but Sweeney never heard back from the billionaire.
