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.
