Hollywood beauty Halle Berry is to take to the skies and splash out on her own private jet.

The Oscar winner, 39, was recently seen eyeing four planes at an air strip in Santa Monica, California, and discussing a potential purchase with salesmen.

An onlooker tells British newspaper The Sun, "She was walking round the jets and giving them all a good inspection.

"She met three salesmen and then had a meeting on board one of the jets. When she got off the planes a few others were brought for her to look at.

"She was pointing at different parts of the planes and asking the men questions."
