I think so too

good idea if you can afford it

It's a big step to "buy" rather than "rent" a jet. You really have to be using it more than once every two or three years for it to be cost effective, becuase you have to store and maintain the jet between uses.

I think all of Bono's political and charity work might have been a big factor in making the decision to finally buy something like a Lear Jet. Think how may times he alone has been on a plane since the tour ended. It would also be available to each member for private use as well, and they all own overseas property they visit frequently. I think they all finally do enough travelling to justify the maintenance costs. It's not so much of a luxury if it's getting frequent use. Probably even saves money.

I know after three of my companies employees were killed on one of the planes that crashed in the WTC, they are seriously considering several jets for company use.

And this will open up new jobs in the U2 camp. They will now need a few pilots available, airplance maintenance workers, stewards, etc. Takes a few people to keep a plane in the air. I have an aviation and rocketry science background. I'm sure I could help they out in some way. How cool would that be?
