Paul Allen (Micrsoft cofounder) has a 757 corporate jet. It was puchased used and had the interior installed but I don't know where it came from originally.

Swiss company Privatair, former Petrolair, operates a 757 alongside the BBJ. Other current and former VIP 757 operators have included Freeport-McMoran and Diamond International Aviation, Inc. Former President Bush along with Colin Powell were once passengers on the Privatair 757 for a trans-Atlantic charter a few years back

My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

There was a UK based CEO who was fired recently by the shareholders for buying a 757 just to take him from Manchester to Jersey each weekend (That's Jersey NOT New Jersey OK). I think the company was Tompkins or something. I think they might be the owners of Smith & Wesson.

Parra Greg Hutchings had a Citation, not a B757.   Sir James Goldsmith had one, though (the Diamond International one) - I flew on it and still have the safety card somewhere.
