on the last day of school my friend and myself put on suits and then temperaraly dyed our hair red and put it in three mohawks. I normally don't do anything to crazy, but this was the last day at this school so we had to do some thing fun. but anyways my teachers all agreed that we looked like duran duran, they played us some of their music and told us that we needed to sing along... well we didn't know the words but we had fun trying hehehehe, good times.
back on track, on QF LAX-AKL I was sitting up stairs in business, and down below in business class their was the lead singer of the pussycat dolls (I don't really listen to to much of their music... but she's hot ) also there was this one supermodel, that was modeling back in my dads time. so I went down stairs so that I could "check out the onboard bar." but really I was just pecking to see if it was true... and it was there were really 2 celebrities on board!
to some people the sky is the limit, to aviation enthusiasts, its home!

I was on an AA flight (MD80) in 1997 from DCA to ORD... it was just after the Gay & Lesbian March on Washington, so the plane was about 80% filled with gay people. Also on the flight was the infamous Reverend Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition, a virulently anti-gay, anti-abortion, and these days, anti-stem cell research organization. Sheldon had been in Washington to ply the airwaves as a "counterpoint" voice to the massive gay rights demonstration that was going on.
Needless to say, when the gay passengers noticed that Sheldon was on board, many took the opportunity to confront him. For the first half of the flight, there was a steady stream of people coming up to him in his aisle seat. From what I could hear, most people described how hurtful his rhetoric was to them personally, or told him their stories about growing up gay, etc. Surprisingly, there was no yelling, and certainly no physical intimidation. Throughout the experience, Sheldon did his best not to make eye contact with anyone. He finally summoned a flight attendant, and after much discussion, he and his wife were moved to first class... and the curtain was closed. The plane erupted in chanting (can't remember what was being said, but it was funny), which continued for some time. When we arrived at ORD, he and his wife were immediately whisked off the airplane by security agents.
Apparently, the same exact thing happened on his connecting flight from ORD to SNA, and it made national news. It was certainly the most entertaining flight I've been on! If you believe in the concept of karma, then you might say that Reverend Sheldon was simply reaping what he'd sowed.

I think it was back around 1984 I had JR Ewing (Larry Hangman) on a AA762 flight LAX-DFW.
About 5 yrs ago I had Terrel Davis from the Denver Broncos on a DL 763 from SAN-ATL.
Also Kellon Winslow from the Chargers on a DL 763 SAN-ATL and the guy who played Bud from Jag on a DL M88 MKE-to CVG.

Flown on the same plane as Dennis Rodman twice, both red-eyes on AA from LAS-DFW. The funny thing is on one of the flights we were sitting in First, Dennis was in Coach, both flights. This was back when he played for the San Antonio Spurs.
