Google has rented hanger space at NASA/Ames for years, to house their
private 727. Doing so meant they didn't have to wait in lines or go through
Airport security. It's possible NASA changed its policy about allowing
private parties to use their airfield, or they simply wanted more control
over Google's comings and goings. In any case, I wouldn't read too much
into it.
