    [EN] Luxury Planes for the Super Rich

    Julian Morgans
    Sep 13 2017

    A billion dollars isn't much. A billion dollars is a startup buyout in Silicon Valley. A billion is what Chinese industrialists make building the fake version of iPhones and fidget spinners. It's a nice chunk of change, sure, but $1 billion will only see you flying around in a Gulfstream or a Cessna, or some other piddly nothing-to-write-home-about jet.

    For Gulf State royals and a handful of Russian Oligarchs, "rich" means a very different thing. This elusive clique of multibillionaires buy up large commercial jets from Boeing or Airbus and adorn them with handwoven carpets, wood paneling, and gold everything. It's a privileged world that's near impossible to get inside unless you happen to be the aviation photographer hired by the plane's interior designer to capture the fit out. At least, that's how Nick Gleis gets in.

    Gleis has made a career out of photographing the planes of the super elite. Originally trained in landscape photography by Ansel Adams, Gleis fell into aviation photography almost by accident. He's been doing it for more than 30 years now and has photographed somewhere in the vicinity of 1,000 planes.
