Jim Carrey's Gulfstream V can carry up to 19 passengers and travels close to the speed of sound. It is just shy of 59 million dollars brand new, and is considered to be one of the highest performing jets in the world. Great pick Jim!
This giant mega jet belongs to Roman Abramovich. He made most of his money in oil export deals in the 90's that were considered highly controversial. Roman was orphaned as a child and now can look at the world smiling with a networth of roughly 8.2 billion dollars. Now that's making something positive of yourself from a negative situation!
The inside of Roman Abramovich's jet looks similar to a hotel. With spacious seating arrangements and hotel-like finishes, it wouldn't be surprising if there was a guest check in desk. He paid nearly 84 million bucks for this jewel, and it seems to be worth every look on the runway in admiration.
Tom Cruise out did himself with this smaller craft, the G-4. It's estimated to be worth 36 million brand new and is known to be able to climb a whopping 45,000 feet, while most other jets rest at 30,000. The G-4 can carry up to 19 passengers all happily sitting comfortably in big plush leather chairs. Hello Mr. Maverick!
Flying in style, the G-4 even includes storage space, monitors to keep up with the flight status, and gorgeous dining tables to nip any in-flight hungar! Luxury is an understatement it seems for this Mission Impossible mega star!
Tom Cruise is snapped here exiting his beloved G-4. He had just flown in for his new movie, Jack Reacher. I'm sure he had plenty of comfort to be able to be the star that he is on screen. Nothing like having comfortable transportation, before hours of standing and filming. .
Harrison Ford is seen walking away from one of his own planes here. However, the difference is he flew himself! The proud owner of this Millennium Falcon also has a license to fly helicopters. Now that's true to Harrison's Indiana Jones action Days! Only 18 million dollars, this Falcon is probably chump change to the renowned Star Wars set designer.
He may be 72 years old, but Harrison Ford keeps himself young and involved. He's been an aviation enthusiast for most of his adult life. In present day he has been able to collect a total of 8 aircrafts! This craft above can fit up to 12 passengers and can travel transcontinental. It travels usually at a reasonable speed of 527 mph, and can go as high as 47,000 feet for an emergency. That's way above the weather layer of the earth's atmosphere! Maybe Ford is actually a secret Indiana Jones society doesn't know about!
Sometimes even the rich and famous can't stop bad situations from happening. With expensive big toys like this one, sometimes things do go wrong. Harrison Ford had a small crash at Santa Monica Airport recently from engine failure. But even for Ford without his Indiana Jones uniform on, he dusted himself off and continues to fly as his passion. He was once quoted saying, "Flying is like good music, it elevates the spirit and it's an exhilarating freedom." Well said Indi!

He mainly uses his jet to fly between companies and come back and forth from his main caribbean residence in Virgin Gorda of the British Virgin Islands!
Sir Richard Branson
Sir Richard Branson is seen above with the star Dita Von Teese. She is a 37 year old Here we can see Sir Richard Branson with Dita Von Teese. The 37 year old American entrepreneur and burlesque dancer lies happily in this billionaire's arms as they pose by his jet in celebration of Branson's company's 10 year anniversary. She reportedly refused to take of those classy red heels, and what a statement this picture makes! Looks like Branson scored a great 10 years!
Sir Richard Branson's private jet is the French-built Dassault Falcon 900. He uses it as his corporate plane, and is one 0f only two planes in production, the Falcon 7x being the other, to have tri-jets. Inside one can view lots of room for guests to sit and room separators if some privacy is needed.
Above is actress Angelina Jolie seen getting out of her petite Cirrus SR22. She is known for her main role in the Tomb Raider movies. She promised her son Maddox that she would learn how to fly, and she followed through her promise! She even has an instrument rating. Taking little Maddox on his a casual joy ride can put real wings on a kid that he can do anything he sets his mind to!
Being a badass in movies may be a direct interpretation of Jolie's life in reality. She not only is a mother of 6, but a cancer survivor, an ambassador in the UN for GoodWill, and gives her time and money to a few selected charities to make a difference in other's lives. Being a certified pilot on top of everything she's accomplished makes her such an example to her children and close friends. She has every reason to smile in this picture!
This back-in-the-day jet is dated but fit for a king! A king no other than Elvis Presley himself, a true American music icon! This Convair 880 is named after his only daughter, Lisa Marie. He used this craft to get to and from shows comfortably when the 'king' was on tour. Snazzy!
A peek inside and the 70's directly welcomes any guest with flamboyant colours and sliding curtains. This jet seats 28 people and seems a bit cheap at $250,000. This may seem like a steal the music icon flew away with- literally! However, back in 1975 this was a whole lot of money not too many people came by in their lifetime. Today you could buy a car for the price of a house. Talk about inflation and change in monetary units!
Inside the Lisa Marie there is very dated looking private dining area. One can see the plastic coverings on the chairs and dated wood finishings. Inside the display case you can spy an old Gatorade bottle and label. This plane is almost 50 years old, hopefully one can pray the ghost of Elvis isn't trapped inside.
There may be other private jets that have this one beat in luxury, but definitely NOT in safety. This one needs no introduction, and as long as you do not live under a rock, you already know who this currently belongs to-- President Obama. This 4,000 square foot second home costs close to 500 million dollars. It's complete with even a office space for work in progress.
Pictured here is the man himself in what looks like a productive meeting in the sky. This Commander in Chief can feel right at home in this White House of the sky. It has staterooms, dining rooms, royal couches and place for any guest or important politician to feel at home.
Above, it looks like Obama has taken full advantage of the seat-belt sign not being on. This plane, also known as air force one, houses a full medical crew and is stocked full of food and snacks for the air, as well as many emergency medical supplies. Even though the security measures are highly classified, it has been released that this particular aircraft can withstand any electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear blast and has encrypted communication lines! Well at least we'll know the Unites States will have a president in times of trouble!
Apple gave this Gulfstream jet to none other than its CEO, Steve Jobs, as a gift. Even though Steve Jobs was the inventor of one of the most used technology devices, the iPhone, having a personalized gift from your job is quite the thank you for all his hard work! Now if only that can happen with every job. I guess these are some of the perks for working in a Billion dollar enterprise.
Here is the inside of the Gulfstream G550. It costs about 59 million dollars to purchase brand new, and is considered a top performer for the business jet category. There are only about 460 of these jets manufactured at this time. Talk about a steal, or shall we say a gift Mr. Jobs!
Here is the sleek Emivest SJ30. Next to his white pearl is Academy Award winner of God himself, or maybe just the voice we all think we hear in our minds after the movie reel ends, actor Morgan Freeman. Freeman also pilots this jet when he's not being released from Shawshank or saving dolphins in a Dolphin Tale. There's nothing he can't be or do it seems when Freeman has it all!
This is the outside view of Morgan Freeman's getaway back to heaven. Before his time as the voice of 'god', Freeman was a mechanic for the US Air Force and was considering a career as a fighter pilot. When Freeman became involved in acting, his pilot career was placed on hold until the age of 65. Now, he owns 3 planes and is a private pilot following his dreams above the clouds.
The private jet of Warren Buffett, who is for sure one of the most successful businessman of the world particularly in investments, was named by Buffett as "The Indefensible." This Bombardier Challenger 600 is spacious inside and has smooth home-like touches which allow any guest to be quite comfortable, Indefensible style.
The Gulfstream IV
Above flying high is the Gulfstream IV. The Gulfstream IV is mainly used as a private jet and is the first jet to be manufactured with a glass cockpit. This means that the entire instrument area is flat like a computer screen with touch screen instruments. It includes instruments like steam, altitude, and airspeed gauges. Kinda scary if that glass cracks or gets wet!
The lead singer of the band U2, Paul David Hewson formerly known as Bono, flew private for a little over a year. He leased this Airbus A310 for a year and 6 months, for his singing tour, and even had them slap a U2 logo on its side. He had a freak accident when there was a faulty hatch on a smaller model of this craft so we can't blame him for wanting to rent!
The model which could have cost Bono his life is this Learjet 60. Bono was flying from Dublin to Berlin when the rear hatch fell off. It was 11 minutes after take off when they noticed something was wrong. Luckily the plane only lost two bags. This could have been a severe safety issue than what it was. God must like this Irish singer and songwriter's music!
The parrothead icon, Jimmy Buffett flies this Grumman Goose seaplane. He is also one of those inconspicuous famous pilots and who likewise enjoys being in the air above the clouds. He is a singer and songwriter who is famous for his songs that take one back to the islands and fit that island mood with a cocktail in hand. It seems very suiting for Jimmy to purchase a seaplane! One of his number one hits is the song, "Margaritaville" and is heard wafting in many resort lobbies along with Bob Marley's famous tunes.
His sea plane is called the Hemisphere Dancer, but in actuality it is a restored Grumman Albatross. It almost looks like a prop for a movie set for Indiana Jones. "Cheeseburger in Paradise" is another famous song by Jimmy who also owns and co-developed his own restaurant chain called Cheeseburger in Paradise. Jimmy seems to have everything he needs from fun rides with cool tunes to tasty burgers at his finger tips I'd say Jimmy is living the relaxed island lifestyle!
Here is the jet of the inner racial golf guru Tiger Woods himself! This Gulfstream G550 is just shy of 54 million brand new bucks and can fly as high as 51,000 feet. It can fly about 12,000 miles nonstop, which is longer than 12 hours one way. It can also hold 18 passengers, which is usually compromised of his golf posse to get to the next golfing tour or vacation.
The view of the Gulfstream G550 is nothing less than grandeur and comfort. It has large comfy seats and a spacious layout to walk back and forth while in flight. There is even a restroom on board with a wardrobe for in between change sessions.
This Boeing private jet has been turned into a luxury home. Even though this jet is not owned by any celebrities, it is sure worth a look inside! This jet makes Air Force One look like a shed, except for the incredible safety features the president's jet carries.
The inside of this bedroom on this private Boeing looks nicer than most hotels. One can barely believe that you're sleeping inside a floating metal space craft! Boeing has been selling its older planes to private people and governments for years now. Let's talk about an expensive deal!
Inside this beautifully furnished Boeing one can see the theater room. This has all the feelings from home, plus more. With a giant room that holds the guest's attention the moment they walk in. Luxury at its best, with great views amongst the crowds.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud is the chief executive officer of the Kingdom Holding Company as the member of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia. This is his Airbus A380 which he bought in 2008 at 487 million dollars. It usually would have held 800 passengers, but the prince customized his plane and refinished the inside of it and made it his second kingdom and earned the plane the name as the largest private jet in the world!
Pictured here is the dinner table fit for a king! Literally! Decked out with gold and beautiful private chairs with personal pillows. When the seats were taken out of this plane, the other rooms on the plane were used to install his marble-finished Turkish bath, and a parking space for his Rolls-Royce. One of the most impressive features on the plane is the prayer room where there are digitized projected mats on the ground that always point toward mecca.
Wow! The splendor of this prince's decorations makes your mouth water when your eyes fall on all the gold and marble grandeur all around. Seated in the center of this room is the gold throne itself where he can relax and act like the prince he is. The framed windows give a sneak peak to being in the clouds with the gods!
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud also has many other jets part of his fleet. He is considered the Warren Buffett of the Middle East, as his reputation is of an investor in phenomenon. I'm sure there are also thrones in every plane, along with more mecca mats, golden showers, and tasty treats. The endless seduction of this man's golden thumb can make anyone have a heart attack in heaven!
