““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.’” ”
Golfer Adam Scott Sells Gulfstream Jet
Pro golfer Adam Scott-the subject of BJT's October/November 2008 cover story-has sold his brand new Gulfstream G450 before taking delivery.
Without giving exact pricing details, Scott strongly insinuated that he made a nice profit on the deal and that he sold the aircraft after getting an offer he could not refuse. There is an approximately two-year waiting list for the G450, so it appears an eager (undisclosed) buyer has now jumped to the front of the line. Scott ordered the jet in 2008 after signing a promotional deal with Gulfstream.
