Trivia
The four engine business jet shown is a Lockheed Jetstar. One of the very few four engined business/personal jet planes produced. They are not as popular as twin engine business or personal jets because they cost more to purchase, maintain, and operate simply because of the four engine configuration. The pods hanging on the wings are external fuel tanks. They were produced from 1957 to 1978 and most were retired from service in the 1990s. Approximately 204 were produced and were the first dedicated business jet produced. Popularity dwindled due to high operating (fuel and maintenance) costs
