Amusing video: What does it take to own a private jet?

with 2 comments

The WSJ published an amusing video about what it takes to own and operate a private jet.  Ostensibly, they’re challenging Obama’s lumping of people making $250k a year in with private jet owners in discussion of the debt ceiling.  I’m not sure he really said precisely that, but it’s an interesting video.  Their numbers related to the costs of owning and operating a jet are fairly accurate.

The discussion is backed up by some b-roll of a Falcon 7 undergoing testing, in one case taking a high speed run through a giant puddle of standing water on the runway — which is interesting in itself.

  2. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?
