Madoff may have had two private planes on call through BLM Air Charter, a company registered at the same address as his Bernard Madoff Investment Securities firm.

According to federal aviation records, BLM Air Charter is one of seven owners of a Cessna Citation X with NetJets, the Berkshire Hathaway company that sells shares of private planes. (NetJets spokesperson Maryann Aarseth declined to comment, saying only that "Part of flying with NetJets is flying privately, so we don't talk about who our NetJet owners are.")

BLM Air Charter's second plane, a 2008 Embraer business jet, is co-owned with a Long Island company.
