Bigger Is Better

Sat Mar 13, 2004 1:42 pm

Does anybody know if Virgin has plans to buy the Airbus A380? I could sit around for hours thinking about what Richard Branson would do. Maybe he could put a spa in the center and a roll-up watertight cover. Add chairs that run into lounge chairs. Put very powerful lights in the ceiling and have a beach party at 20,000 feet! After all, he does have bars in one or two of his 747s right now. I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to do something similar with the A380! As Austin Powers would say: Shagadelic! Maybe Sir Richard should paint it to match Austin's private 747. Watch the movie if you haven't seen the plane!

I'm not sure of the status of their orders.

But I have a 1/100th scale model of the A380 in Virgin colors and it is one of the highlights of my model collection!
