"At 9:45 the next morning , Nixon left his Fifth Avenue apartment and headed with his aide for LaGuardia Airport, where the Reader's Digest Gulfstream was waiting for the thirty-five-minute flight to Philadelphia."

In this paragraph, what does Gulfstream mean?
I believe it's not a person's name.
If it means the company that produces airplanes, then why is "Reader's Digest" used here? It makes no sense.

@JustinXujia,
It makes perfect sense.

Gulfstream (short for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation) is an airplane manufacturer's brandname. In this case, Reader's Digest, a publishing corporation, owns said private jet.

@JustinXujia,
Gulfstream is the brand of private jet in which he was going to fly. No idea what Reader's Digest has to with it unless it could have been owned by the magazine corporation and allowed him to fly on it.

@tsarstepan,
It do make sense if Reader's Digest owns Gulfstream.

Thank you!
