ditching the tour bus for private jet

Anyone have any idea at what point of their career did U2 do away with the tour bus and start flying between cities of their tour?

They first had a plane on TUF Tour... an ancient plane, but a plane nonetheless.

Lately, however, Bono flies by being God, and Edge caries Adam and Larry on his back as he generates large amount of fire emerging from large jets in his shoes.

Pedal power. Bono pedals and they all ride on his back.

He designed me a house in my dream last night and it was built a metre from a lake. I'm forever angry at him.

Danny creates ethereal states of movement with pedal steel; true transportation is unnecessary for him.
