Noel Gallagher is making 'serious enquiries' about a Lear jet

Oasis are planning on buying a private jet.

The band are looking into how much a Gallagher-owned plane would cost, and have even thought of a name for it.

Speaking on their blog Noel Gallagher said: “We’re making serious enquiries as to how much one of these private jets cost. We think with a bit of creative accounting we could probably afford one.”

He then jokily added the current global economic crisis had served as inspiration for the would-be plane’s name.

He said: “We’ve christened ours ‘The Credit-Crunch?‘ – It’s the only way to fly, y’know?”
