Stan Posted: 2/12/2010 8:42am PST You have to be careful these days taking the corporate jet to DC. A hangar collapse at Dulles from the recent heavy snow demolished a bunch of them, including Kodak's and some others. Ramon Posted: 6/20/2011 7:03pm PDT Musk is hardly in the same position as the CEOs of Chrysler and GM - he is not begging for a bailout. Nor is Tesla his main employment - that would be Space X, which has competed for govt contracts. I doubt whether either Tesla or Space X paid for the private jet, which Musk can easily afford. If you had questioned him on that score you probably would have been looking rather foolish.
