Adding to Jamess's Great Diary:  'There were so many private jets, it looked like an Air Force base'+

TEAMWORK in the comments:  Many have provided research on different Romney $$ Palooza attendees in the comments below.

Thank you to those who provided some research about the Jet Set.  In order of presentation, a SHOUT OUT to busternjake, ThatPoshGirl, FWIW, dharmafarmer, RJDisom74135, PrescottPatriot, bluezen, Cali Scribe, Alumbrados, deweysmom, Villanova Rhodes, AZ RedWingsFan, and varro.

Also, Rolling Stone breaks down what some of Romney's Billionaire Boys Club hope to gain if they succeed in buying the Presidency this year.  I highly recommend reading

Right-Wing Billionaires Behind Mitt Romney They're trying to buy a presidency - and they expect a big payoff on their investment

Mitt Romney's Billionaire Friends Jet in for the Park City Retreat (Watch the sound, this is a Drive By Shooting of the scene at the Heber City Airport this weekend)

I thought it would be fun to see whose planes were flying in and out of the Heber City, Utah Airport (airstrip really), also called the Russ McDonald Field Airport.

You, too, can view Flight Tracker for Russ McDonald Field Airport here.

So I took screen shots of the Flight Tracker information and found the following Who's Who's flying in and out thinking these could be some of the Big Wigs attending Romney's $$ Palooza.

Screen shots below

I will update if and as I find more.  Also, one could imagine that there are others flying in and out of Salt Lake City Airport.  Haven't checked there yet.

Here's a picture of the airfield in Heber City, Utah.  It's really, really small.  

Heber City Airport  

Here's Arriving/Departing list of planes on 6/24/2012 at 2:42 PM EST

Flight Tracker, Heber City Airport 6:24:2012 242 PM EST

Arriving/Departing list of plaines UPDATED at 4:45 PM EST
Heber City Airport Flight Tracker 445 PM EST

Here's what I found.  Please keep in mind that coincidence could play a role.  That said it is possible that the following very wealthy people and entities could have parked their jets in Heber City this weekend because they were attending the Romney $$ Palooza.

Also, sadly, please keep in mind that Congress gave the 1% a Christmas present last year.  From Thom Hartman:

Internet tracking of private jets now blocked again. Koch brothers win again!

In short, the Uber Rich that use Jets like we use cars can Opt-Out and we can no longer track their Jets.

We'll begin with

Luxury Hotels Of The Romney Campaign

All of these hotels appear under "TRAVEL: LODGING" in Mitt Romney's January 2012 campaign finance report. (Source:
Private Jets Of The Romney Campaign
All of these companies are listed under "TRAVEL: AIR" in Mitt Romney's January 2012 campaign finance report. In some cases they are private companies that own a single jet. In other cases they are charter jet companies. Amount paid to each company in parenthesis. Total spending on private jets was $1,008,144.23. (Source:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
