Michael Jordan's Gulfstream IV
Think your favorite celebrity flies coach? Think again. Well, technically some do (Example A, Example B), but for A-listers and those who frequently pull in multi-million contracts, waiting in line to board a commercial flight in "Group C" is pretty rare. As a matter of fact, not only do many celebrities not fly coach, some have opted to own/lease their own planes.
That brings us to Celebrity Aircraft, a website created by an obvious #avgeek looking to log information on what celeb flies in what jet.
So you probably missed it, but there was a snippet in the NY Post over the weekend that mentioned how basketball legend Michael Jordan had nipped off to the CuisinArt Resort on Anguilla for lunch with Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly, and that of course he flew down in his private jet. The description given of the plane was simply that it's "branded with a blue-and-white Air Jordan logo of him dunking a basketball on its tail." Of course we had to find out more.
After some serious digging (aka Googling), we came up with the best picture we could find of itofficial shots aboveand some others here and here on Flickr. The beautya Gulfstream IVdoes indeed have Jordan dunking a basketball on its tail, but hello NY Post; that's the Air Jordan logo. What's more is that the plane sports colors similar to a past pair of the shoes, and the rear pair of windows are highlighted, such as the top eyelets of a hightop would be. Here is an Air Jordan that could be a cousin of this plane.
