+ - Google Execs Used Discount Code 'NASA' to Buy Jet Fuel 1

Submitted by theodp
theodp (442580) writes "When Google CEO Larry Page gassed-up three of the jets he owns (with Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt) to tote guests to his brother-in-law's wedding in Croatia, Pentagon records show that the trio's corporate entity H211 bought 24,000+ gallons of jet fuel at NASA's Moffett Field just prior to the departure, paying an average of $3.33 a gallon, at least $1.10 per gallon less than the going rate. The Dept. of Defense, it turns out, only just ended a program in which it sold sharply discounted fuel to three of the world's richest men for use in their fleet of jets parked at Moffett. The move, according to the WSJ, followed discussions earlier this year between the Pentagon and NASA over whether the Google founders may have exceeded contract terms by using sharply discounted jet fuel bought from the Pentagon for non-government flights. In April, Wired reported that Google’s top three execs are expected to move their collection of jets to an $82 million private terminal at Mineta San Jose International Airport"
