It’s unfortunate that for many of you, the first you’ve heard of a great aviation site will be under such sad circumstances. Airliners.Net is a site with thousands of pictures of just about every type of airplane ever made. One of my favorite sections is the older pictures of airlines that no longer exist.

Citigroup is using $50 million of its $45 billion of capital that it received from the U.S. government to buy a new airplane. The news wires, newspapers, and blogs are afire with this story, but not a lot is being said about the airplane specifically, so here’s some info on it. The airplane in question is a Dassault Falcon 7X (pictured) and is about as big and expensive as private jets go.
