Re: Berkshire Hathaway Buying Shares of US4

Video- Global 7000 flies. Price tag $73 mil

http://money.cnn.com/2016/11/04/news/co ... index.html
-->

For a cool $73 mil, you can buy a Global 7000. It comes with a max range of 7200NM. That's enough to stay in the air for almost 15 hours

If I'm not mistaken. Netjets will be the first customer to receive it, with an order for 10
