Google founders pay $1.3 million to fly jet from NASA airport, reports the San Jose Mercury News. Google founders, Sergey and Larry are coughing up an annual sum of $1.3 million, in order to take off, land and park their Boeing 767-200 from a NASA managed airport, located close to their office headquarters.


"The deal became effective Aug. 1, but the NASA's Ames Research Center didn't announce the agreement until this week following reports that the large jet had been spotted at Moffett Federal Airfield located near Google's hometown of Mountain View. The news raised concerns about noise problems in cities neighboring the former naval air station. Moffett Field is normally off limits to private aircraft, but the space agency made an exception for Page and Brin in exchange for the right to carry scientists and their equipment on planes used by the two billionaires."


Perhaps, paying $1.3 million per annum is pocket change for young billionaires, seeking a break from their regular duties, of controlling the world's search.
