GULFSTREAM G650 – PRIVATE JET CHARTER
NEW YORK CITY, NY (June 8th, 2013) – Early yesterday morning at a private airfield outside Dallas, Texas, Gulfstream’s highly anticipated G650 took off on the world’s first ever charter flight for the brand new business jet. The amazing G650 is the fastest jet in the world (beating out the Citation X by 3mph at 704 mph) and is capable of non-stop flights from New York to Hong Kong. Priority One Jets, a New York based full-service private aviation company, was the first to broker the plane for a weekend retreat for one of their clients.
As of the start of 2013 Gulfstream had only delivered six of the company’s new flagship aircraft, limiting access to the plane to only the most select audience. “We are constantly looking for the most outstanding aircraft in the world to match with our clients’ ever increasing expectations. When the G650 became available for charter, we knew we had to put it to use on one of our client flights immediately,” said Adam Petruccione, Board President of Priority One Jets.

FOX NEWS TELLS ‘CORPORATE JET OWNERS ARE THE REAL VICTIMS’ SIDE OF STORY
During the President’s anger bear speech yesterday when he yelled at Congress to fix the stupid debt ceiling already, Obama proposed ending tax breaks for corporate jet owners as a means of raising revenue instead of cutting from programs that make sure children do not starve. Automatically, this means that Fox News must do a story on the plight of victimized corporate jet owners, who are just the latest group of voiceless Americans thrown under the bus by giant ogre Nobama. Who really needs those $3 billion a year more than those corporate jet owners, those people who are singlehandedly keeping the economic recovery afloat with their tax break from 2008?

CNN: FIVE SPECTACULAR OVERWATER HUT RESORTS
By A. Pawlowski
(CNN) — The room service arrived in a canoe and exotic fish frolicked just beneath the floor when Gary Leff spent his honeymoon in Bora Bora.
Life is good when you’re in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and even better when you’re staying in an overwater bungalow — that iconic, stilted, thatch-roofed symbol of a tropical paradise.
“It’s unique because there’s a million beachfront resorts in the world … but it’s much less common to have your room actually be [over] the water,” Leff said.
