When Kylie Jenner’s very brief flight on a private jet went viral last week, people were outraged — largely about the environmental impact of the trip.

Jack Sweeney was unfazed. The 19-year-old whose Twitter account @CelebJets publicized Jenner’s trip has made a name for himself since January by publicly tracking the private jets of billionaires and celebrities. He says the reaction to Jenner’s 17-minute flight was only surprising to him because he’s seen Elon Musk take even shorter flights on his private jet, without nearly as much uproar.


Sweeney says Musk has flown multiple times from Los Angeles International Airport to Hawthorne Airport, which are about six miles — a 10-minute drive — apart. That’s much shorter than Jenner’s roughly 40-mile flight from Camarillo, California, to Van Nuys, California.
