Peter Jackson’s $68 Million Gulfstream G550

Director Peter Jackson recently acquired a new Gulfstream G550 for an estimated price of $68 million. The private jet is one of the nicest jets on the market and can fly from New Zealand to Los Angeles non-stop. Jackson previously had a Gulfstream IV but was plagued with too many fuel stops, so he decided to trade up. The G550 can accommodate up to 16 passengers. Some of the seats can even be converted to beds, although those may require some pajamas. Jackson is a vintage aircraft collector and owns 29 World War I aircraft, some original and some replicas. Although we don’t charter vintage planes, Magellan Jets does have the capability of accommodating customers who would like large Gulfstream jets just like Mr. Jackson’s, all with the highest levels of safety and comfort and for far less cost than owning your own.

Charter a Jet With Your Pet

Recently, President Obama’s dog, Bo, traveled to Maine on his own private jet. The Obama’s love their dog so much that they wanted to ensure his safety and comfort while traveling to Maine. Pet friendly hotels and vacation rentals have seen growing demand but transporting your pet to your desired destination has caused some trouble and aggravation. If you choose to fly commercial with your pet, the entire process can be extremely traumatic for them. Most commercial airline companies require your animal to stay inside a crate and be placed with the luggage if they exceed a 20lb weight limit. With a private jet charter, your little (or big!) friend can be by your side at all times with no hassle. Pets are able to travel onboard the aircraft while being relaxed, stable, and in complete luxury. Perhaps the biggest bonus to it all is that you know where your pet is at all times. Magellan has had many clients travel with their pets, so we’re pros at the in’s and out’s of the process. We’re always happy to help make the experience exceptional for you and your furry (or feathery or scaley) friend!

Teen Fugitive Steals Private Jets

A 19 year-old fugitive is wanted by the FBI in the Bahamas. Colton Harris-Moore is a teenage thief who has been taunting police for over two years now. Colton has been committing burglaries and possible theft of boats, airplanes, and luxury cars. Recently he has been spotted in the Bahamas and the US embassy has issued a $10,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest. The owner of a stolen plane was contacted by the Coast Guard that his plane has been sending emergency signals off the coast of the Bahamas. Colton was the prime suspect and he was nowhere to be found when the plane crashed. Sounds like Catch Me If You Can, a 2002 film starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. If the owner of the plane used Magellan Jets, he wouldn’t have to worry about theft related issues.
