Virgin Galactic’s partner Scaled Composites conducted a powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo earlier today. During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle. Our first concern is the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time. We will work closely with the relevant authorities to determine the cause of the accident and provide updates as soon as we are able to do so.

Lisa Marie Aircraft - 1960 Convair 880

On April 17, 1975 Elvis bought a Convair 880 Jet, recently taken out of service by Delta Airlines, for the then-substantial sum of $250,000. After refurbishing, the total exceeded $600,000.

The plane was in a hangar at Meacham Field in Fort Worth, and for months Elvis took great pleasure in flying friends out to check on progress as the interior of the plane was refurbished to his very specific design requirements (he bought another plane to make those trips - a smaller Lockheed JetStar). Elvis wanted a seating area, a conference room, and a private bedroom on the plane (with space for an in-flight reading library). He picked fabrics, decided on color schemes, chose the on-board audio-visual system, and even Ok'd the gold fixtures in the bathrooms (he counted heavily on some aesthetic input from Pricilla too).

The Grey Bird -1982 Gulfstream GIII

The “Grey Bird” as she’s been named, is a special mission Gulfstream III aircraft owned and operated by Phoenix Air Group Inc.  Due to it’s former life in the Danish Air Force, military styled paint scheme, and general association with government contract flights there has been much suspicion and rumors as to it’s use.  In August 2014, the Grey Bird made global headlines as it was contracted to evacuate two medical workers with Ebola Virus, and transport them back to isolated medical care in Georgia, USA. The aircraft was specially modified with a disposable containment pod for the twelve hour transport of the highly infectious passengers. The aircraft, arriving to the United States from Africa made a fuel stop in Maine before continuing on to Atlanta.  Additionally, the aircraft did not appear on US radar systems or tracking programs such as Flight Aware.  Adding to the shadowy mystique of the Grey Bird and it’s purpose hauling highly infectious cargo.  Click Here to view the report on the 1982 GIII.

 

   

James Brown - 1965 Learjet 23

Do you know why James Brown was always saying, “I feeeeel Good!” ?  It’s because he rode everywhere in a Learjet.  The Lear was one of many aircraft James owned.  James Brown was a long time aviator.  In fact, he was the previous owner of the Beech H18 aircraft that Otis Redding was killed in.  And one of his dreams was to get to fly aboard the Airbus A380 before he died.   When Brown purchased this Learjet with aircraft dealer Robert Graff, Brown was the first African American to own a private jet.

On July 2, 1937, While attempting a trip around the world, Amelia Earhart crashed her Lockheed Electra 10E NR16020 near Howland Island, New Guiena.  Neither the wreckage, nor her body were ever discovered.  Thanks to Plane Fax Reports, we are able to see the registration files on this aircraft.  There is some really fascinating history to be found within these documents including the bill of sale on the aircraft, the reason the registration was canceled, a description of the search and even a $500 fine that was waived from an unreported crash.

John F. Kennedy Jr. In the words of Ted Kennedy, "We dared to think, in that other Irish phrase, that this John Kennedy would live to comb gray hair, with his beloved Carolyn by his side. But, like his father, he had every gift but length of years. "A wrongful death lawsuit brought by the Bessette family against the Kennedy estate concluded with an undisclosed out of court settlement. The settlement avoided the publicity of a public trial. (source Wikipedia)
