So, where do these gazillionaires keep their planes, jets and other flying toys? Google's co-founders leave their jets on NASA turf.

"That would be against aviation rules," Ellison told Charlie Rose in a CBS interview -- before adding that if he had, wink wink, hypothetically done such a thing, he'd definitely take the fighter jet.
