They get to park their G-5s at the former Moffet dirigible facility there, too. I think the Govt has even given the facility to them on lease or purchase now.

Nope, no tit for tat here....I wouldn’t even spit on Google. Never use them, or anything they advertise that I knowingly am aware of.

Now if Grassley would go after ethanol producers with the same enthusiasm, I’d be impressed.

It’s the #1 reason for high food prices and contributes to high gas prices.

I’ve been thinking this for years.

Google is as private as your tax returns to the IRS.

don’t you need to go prove to your overlords at the IRS that you made a certain income? the IRS needs more $ for NASA to do more global warming propaganda for the global warming hoax

government is the problem,disband all agencies except military and border control

Google cannot afford fuel for their luxury jets? Poor company, we should give
them taxpayer money so they don't have to deal with public transportation.

That'll teach 'em. Laughable, because you provide them money every single day.

Google Takes Over Moffet

Use of Moffet field for general aviation was fought for by CRAMP and AOPA back in the early 90's.

NASA fought back by vilifying General Aviation at every step of the way. The city of Sunnyvale and Mountain View routinely attacked GA pilots and airplanes as "dangerous amateurs" who would "crash into school yards".

Thus was GA forced to Reid-Hillview - where Santa Clara County did every thing they could to prevent renovation of the facility - and to South County airport, where it's actually not too bad. They did let them build some hangars.

And then along come a couple of corrupt little twits like Larry Page and Sergey Brin (he's Russian, so the corruption thing comes naturally). Not only are they flying Big Bad Eeevil Noisy Smoky Scary JETS (not C-172s), they want the taxpayers to subsidize them.

And NASA rolls right over for it.

BTW, the other people who get to use a U.S. "Federal" airfield?

The Russian cargo company Volga-Dneiper.

American? Fly airplanes? Pound sand, loser. You can't land here.
