Allen got out of microsoft early so he's only worth 21 billion as opposed to his wealthier former partner who's worth 45 billion!

Oh well, I guess he just has to settle for being 5th on the Forbes list.

That was his private plane. A 727, I believe?

This is my all time favorite used to be called "ECO" owned by a cable tv provider of Mexico it has a seaplane that boards from the rear and an 18,500hp gas turbine center engine that pushes her upward of 35 knots. He bought a tanker and based it in the Azores to meet her on transatlantic crossings for refuelling so she could run at high speed while he flew over in his private 727. She is 244 feet long and last I knew owned by the guy that started Oracle; for sale for $68 million.
