The ‘Fury’ star is reportedly gifting the ‘Unbroken’ director with the pricey present to celebrate her 40th birthday on June 4.

The couple has already made a visit to a dealer in Europe, according to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, and are planning to keep the plane on the runway at their home in Château Miraval near Brignoles, France.

And to make sure Angelina is able to use her present fully, Brad is also throwing in flying lessons as, although the actress and director has flying experience, there is extra skill required for landing a plane on water.

The French estate – which they purchased in 2008 for £35 million – is an important place for the couple; they got married at the beautiful country retreat last year and it is also the place where Brad proposed to the ‘Maleficent’ star in 2012.

Their sprawling mansion features 35 bedrooms and the 1000 acres of grounds is home to a vineyard where they produce their award-winning rosé wine, named after the château.

Meanwhile, Angelina previously opened up about her personal and professional successes during her “amazing” year.

She gushed: “It’s been an amazing year. I married my love, my son [Maddox] became a teenager, and I got to bring [‘Unbroken’] to the world.

“I would be happy when [acting] is over. If I am lucky enough to have a career as a director, it would be a very nice transition. And then, when I can, Brad and I can work together.”
