““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
The French Riviera's Triple Bill
The French Riviera seems likely to be a popular destination this spring, with the famous Cannes International Film Festival set for May 11 to 22 and the Formula 1 Grand Prix in the streets of neighboring Monaco scheduled for May 24. Then comes the Cannes Airshow, a business and general aviation event, from June 9 through 11. Aéroport International de Cannes-Mandelieu will host this show, where more than 50 for-sale preowned aircraft will be on display.
