Open your wallets and start counting that loose change, we've got the deal of a lifetime if you're in the market for a private corporate jet that comes with a little bit of tumultuous history.
The Gulfstream that carted the former Abercrombie & Fitch CEO, Mike Jeffries, around the portfolio of erotically marketed collegiate clothing stores, has just been marked down a few million dollars for the most interested party. After a few years of sales that have used a good amount of red ink, the clothier dropped the G550's price by $11 million in the hopes of making a quick sale.
We're not too sure the new owner would adopt the 47-page rule book that Jeffries required it's crew to abide by while jetting off with the exec. Now, we've heard of tough flight attendant rules from some of the best carriers in the world, but these rules are far from the deportment classes that Singapore Girls attend and Amazon jungle survival skills that TAM's crew learn. We're talking about where Jeffries' dogs sat, what type of underwear the male crew wore and how to respond the requests.

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.
