Look out Microsoft, here comes the Google Air Force!

Microsoft should start building some anti-aircraft defenses at Redmond because Google executives now have a fighter jet as part of their fleet of planes, or to be more precise, a Dornier Alpha of joint German and French design.   Nice the things you can get a hold of when you have a huge bank account eh?

The plane is part of a company controlled by Google’s top executives, including Larry Page and Sergey Brin, called “H211 L.L.C.”  The fighter jet is sitting at Moffett Field which is close to the Google campus and which is controlled by NASA.    The plane is equipped with scientific instruments for NASA missions.

NASA released some documents under the Freedom of Information Act about H211 L.L.C.   They don’t explain though why Google bosses have a NASA equipped jet and what it has to do with an internet search company.  Is this just a case of rich boys showing off their toys?    Or does Larry and Sergey have a radical business plan to wipe out their rivals in one quick bombing run?   Watch out Bill.   They’re coming for you!  Arm those surface-to-air missiles!

  3. So, Google has finally started taking over the world. Don't say I didn't warn you when we've all fallen onto the regime of terror of Google Inc. And they said I was crazy…

  5. Do you know what Google needs? A Gene Wilder robot to give psychedelic tours of the Google HQ to 5 golden ticket winners. We should only worry if Dean Kamen, joins forces with Google, only then will they be unstoppable… or at least harder to knock over.

  7. The way I understand it, they bought that jet and "allow" NASA to use it so that Google can also use the airfield for their private planes and not have to go to the regular airfield further away.
