The five-passenger twinjet was then flown to the U.S. by new owners James and Elizabeth Frost of Houston. The couple are pilots who successfully completed the Phenom 100 training syllabus and who plan to use the Phenom for business and family travel.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
