Behold the pinstriped opulence of the Embraer Manhattan Private Jet: an Art Deco symphony of mahogany, brass and gold trim: yours for a trifling $80 million.
The interior includes the ‘Cloud Club’ lounge with its bar and panoramic window, the ‘Crystal Room’ where six guests can sit for dinner and a well-appointed main cabin with space for up to nineteen passengers.
“A Russian Su-24 fighter has been shot down in Syria, Russian Defense Ministry said, adding the plane hadn’t violated Turkish airspace and was at an altitude of 6,000 meters. The pilots managed to eject from the downed jet, the ministry said, adding their fate is as yet unknown.”
“Habertürk TV reporter on the scene said that the aircraft “turned into a fireball.” Numerous witnesses wrote on social media, saying thick plumes of smoke have been rising from the jet crash site.”
“…A Turkish military official told Reuters the jet was warned before being targeted. The official added that the plane was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter jets.”

It’s called the “economy class cabin hexagon” and it looks as awful as it sounds.
