Google Founders can land on NASA Airport

The Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin struck a deal with NASA to be able to land and park their wide-body Boeing 767-200 and two Gulfstream Vs jets.

No private planes are generally allowed to land at Moffett Field, an airport run by NASA. If you know Silicon Valley, than you know how close the location of Moffett Field airport is to the Google head quarters. It is ideal for the apparently very jet-set Google founders. Google pays $1.3 million per year to NASA for this perk. They apparently also carry NASA scientific gear on the plans, which just sounds like an excuse for the deal.
