玩很大!約翰的飛機直接開進豪宅後院


這次去美國,在LAX很幸運地拍攝了這一架約翰屈福塔的B707。他是飛機玩家,自己收藏真的大玩具,也會飛飛機。不過前幾天阿童大師跟我說他家的玩很大,才更讓我吃驚。原來,這一架B707平常不是常駐LAX的,人家約翰兄是住在佛羅里達,而他住的地方,最神奇的是,有跑道,有停飛機的地方。人家是直接把飛機開到後院放。唉!這樣才是玩很大啊!

約翰老兄住的地方,是一個叫做Greystone airport的地方,用姑狗餓死可以看到,有一條18/36的跑道。這個跑道,有滑行道連通到幾個好野人的家,讓他們可以把飛機直接開到家裡後院停放。這當中,最有錢的當然是約翰先生,他家可以放的飛機可多著呢!最氣人的是,怎麼可以連B707都開過去停!恨恨恨~




網路有一些資料可以查,大家可以連過去看看。

另外,維基百科對於這個機場的描述是:

Greystone Airport (FAA LID: 17FL) is a private-use airport. It is located in the unincorporated community of Anthony, which is seven miles (11 km) northeast of Ocala, Florida, USA. Jumbolair, Inc. owns and operates Greystone.[1] The airport has two runways: 18/36 with an asphalt pavement measuring 7,550 x 210 ft (2,301 x 64 m) and 9/27 with a grass surface measuring 3,640 x 100 ft (1,109 x 30 m). According to FAA documents, 18/36 was once so degraded that only the smallest aircraft could use it.[2] The main runway has recently been repaved to fix the damage.
[edit] Jumbolair

Jumbolair Aviation Estates is an aviation-related gated community and airpark situated alongside the airport's runway. Terri Jones, a former Revlon model and flying enthusiast, manages the estates. A 380 acres (150 ha) horse ranch formerly built by Muriel Vanderbilt and purchased by Jones' first husband Arthur Jones in 1980 sits at the community's center. The 550 acres (220 ha) development contains two 3 acres (1.2 ha) lots connected by taxiways which lead to the runways.

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston were some of the first land purchasers. The runway length allows Travolta, a pilot, to operate his Boeing 707 jet. In January 2007, litigation prevented all property owners in the subdivision from accessing the runway with their aircraft. The access issue was resolved when Jumbolair purchased the adjacent land and remaining airport rights.[1]

以前那些日本機場,有很多供飛機疏散的滑行道;現在美國有錢人的機場,也有很多滑行道─只不過是通到他們的前院...

而且在我們的社區裡偶爾有汽機車碰撞的事,在他們那個社區則是撞飛機?...

住這種豪宅不會覺得很吵嗎?
