Google’s billionaire founders, owners of a Boeing 767 that has been the talk of Silicon Valley, are apparently adding another unusually large private jet to their fleet: a Boeing 757.
Like the Boeing 767, and two other jets operated by a company controlled by Google’s most senior executives, the Boeing 757 has landing rights at Moffett Field, a NASA-operated airfield that is a few miles from Google’s Mountain View campus.

Maybe NASA started borrowing the first plane too much? or Google is planning on sending extra staff to Pubcon?

I am surprised they did not wait until one of the more environmentally friendly planes came on the market, or buy one of the current ones.

Maybe they should dump the jets and buy a couple of blimps. (In its heyday, Moffett Field was a U.S. Navy blimp base, among other things.)
