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 $$ Palooza attendees in the comments below.
Thank you to those who provided some research about the Jet Set. In order of presentation, a SHOUT OUT to busternjake, ThatPoshGirl, FWIW, dharmafarmer, RJDisom74135, PrescottPatriot, bluezen, Cali Scribe, Alumbrados, deweysmom, Villanova Rhodes, AZ RedWingsFan, and varro.
Also, Rolling Stone breaks down what some of Romney's Billionaire Boys Club hope to gain if they succeed in buying the Presidency this year. I highly recommend reading
Mitt Romney's Billionaire Friends Jet in for the Park City Retreat (Watch the sound, this is a Drive By Shooting of the scene at the Heber City Airport this weekend)
I thought it would be fun to see whose planes were flying in and out of the Heber City, Utah Airport (airstrip really), also called the Russ McDonald Field Airport.
You, too, can view Flight Tracker for Russ McDonald Field Airport here.
So I took screen shots of the Flight Tracker information and found the following Who's Who's flying in and out thinking these could be some of the Big Wigs attending Romney's $$ 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.
Here's Arriving/Departing list of planes on 6/24/2012 at 2:42 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:
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
ROMNEY'S PLANE <> JCPE LLC, Boston MA - N926SS
Added after 4:45 PM EST
Added after 6:00 PM EST - 5 New Jet Setters
There are two other airports that are within 1 hours drive of Park City: Provo and Tooele. We found some more Jet Setters that might be attending Romney's Billionaire Festival, too.
Tooele, Utah Airport this weekend:
Provo, Utah Airport this weekend:
CHARTERED PLANES: You can read the destinations on each. There are so many flying in and out of Provo, Tooele, Heber, and Salt Lake this week end, I will have to leave lists below.
I'LL UPDATE IF/WHEN I FIND MORE Start digging KOSSACKS. Who are these people/corporations?

All of these hotels appear under "TRAVEL: LODGING" in Mitt Romney's January 2012 campaign finance report. (Source: http://thkpr.gs/...)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.
