G.E.’s “Corporate Jet With No Passengers”

by Orel Protopopescu

A private “chase plane” tagged along wherever Immelt flew,
without a single passenger— just pilots, staff and crew.

Why should the boss be idle when an engine needs repairs?
Why waste time renting charters when you have convenient spares?

If only stocks had taken off with Immelt’s perks and pay,
his stunning carbon wingprint might still stretch to Mandalay.
