Had to go on a business trip today and flew in one of our corporate jets. We have 3 Beechjet 440As as in this picture. Sure beats commercial (which by the way is how I fly 99.99999% of the time). These three jets are at a local airport 5 minutes from my house and I rarely get to go anywhere in them.

SW Missouri to North Carolina this afternoon in 1 hour and 45 minutes. 580 mph at 40,000 feet. They wouldn't let me fly it and there was no Buddy Box for it either.

Very cool jet Bill!

FDO had a couple of jets and I'd get to go in them but never had the opportunity to fly in one. WMT didn't have any for years then got them for cross country travel. I did get to fly with Sam a couple of times in some of his prop planes, that was an experience.

I fly out of the Northwest Arkansas airport quite a bit. That's where Wal-Mart's planes are along with their 3 bazillion square foot distribution center.

Yeah, sure beats commercial Bill. Most of the time I go to NC it takes me a full day to get there and a full day back. Left here yesterday at 2:00 had dinner there, meetings this morning and back in the office at home by 2:30 today.
