Over the weekend in Las Vegas, the billed “Fight of the Century” took placed between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the MGM Grand. Speculation and rumors about whether or not the fight would or would not take place has been around for the last five years. With it taking place and proving to be the first monumental fight to occur within the last 15 years or so, brought out celebrities from every walk of life. From Tom Brady, who flew in from the Kentucky Derby earlier in the day to Robert Dinero and hundreds of other famous individuals, the fight not only proved to be a whose who in the celebrity community, but it also truly showcased how much money revolved around the fight, simply with the sheer number of private jets flying into McCarren International Airport.

There is a special terminal for private jets flying into Vegas at the McCarren International Airport. With all of the special events and forms of entertainment at the airport, having the different landing platform and runway proves helpful. However, for the fight and so many individuals flying in on their private jets, the runway actually had to be completely closed down as it was overcrowded with private jets. With the jets flying in from all across the country, the airport closed this airport down early so private jets had to eventually land in a nearby airport and the celebs taxied into the city.
