Private jet for the MGM Mirage, brings all the high rollers to the casino. Your right, that's a long flight, extra fuel tanks I guess?

N721MM is an ex-Aero Lloyd bird that was built with extra long range fuel tanks. There are 3 of these ex-AeroLloyd birds in the US that have been converted to exec jet.

The owner of N287KB flies to Europe regularly. It has flown many times from the San Francisco area to Gander non-stop.
