foxnews.com Google's top execs are using their private fleet of jets to fly to some of the world's most exotic vacation spots -- and taxpayers appear to be footing part of the bill. When they aren't grounded at NASA's Moffett Field, the search engine's jets guzzle government fuel to carry Google's billionaire bosses to Tahiti, Hawaii and a host of private Caribbean beaches, according to a detailed analysis reviewed by FoxNews.com. Google -- and the government -- say parking spaces and discounted fuel are justified because of the scientific research the company does with the space agency. But the data shows trips may be more about surf than science, said Drew Johnson, a fellow at the Center for Individual Freedom. “It appears that Google’s jets perform very little actual scientific research (unless calculating the circumference of Mai Tai umbrellas on the beaches of Babelthuap somehow qualifies),” Johnson wrote.
