While an expensive sports car might look like the absolute show of wealth and style for most people, the rich and powerful are on another level. They have the money to take to the seas and skies in private jets and yachts, enjoying a lifestyle normal people can only dream about. Flying or floating, these opulent status symbols are also very practical for people for whom time is money and a timely business meeting or a successful party can make or break their fortunes – and any financial adviser would say the same. Let’s take a look at the yachts and jets of the world’s elite!
John Travolta – Boeing 707, Estimated $4.5 Million
The famous actor is a well-known aviation enthusiast. He holds a pilot’s license so it is not really a surprise that he has a small collection of aircraft in his private airport/home in Florida. His hobby has turned into an investment of more than $50 million as he owns 4 airplanes. The Boeing 707 is no longer his property as he donated it to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, not surprising for an actor known for charity and philanthropy.
