Ok, I'll start bidding at $100 (lol)
Sounds cool, and it would be really cool if all of A.net can chip in for it and we can have it fly members around.

You got that right bruthah...and a lifetime supply of facelifts and toupees and velcro to hold it all together.

Wish I could see what's inside the airplane and on the radio racks....my experience with celeb aircraft (Elvis, Kenny Rogers, Paul Anka) was that they were only modestly endowed in the equipment and avionics departments...

Good one!! I almost choked on my Yoplait yogurt!!

When I used to work at LAS I used to see this A/C all the time- seemed to always be clean, and kept up anyway... Just like Wayne.
He is a little anal about everything, I'm sure...(!!??**%%)

There are rumors that he's having money problems again and may owe the IRS some back taxes again (He filed for bankruptcy back in 1992). Earlier this year he walked out on his 10 year $25 million a year contract he signed in 1999 with the Stardust. He's doing some occassional stuff at the LV Hilton, but I bet walking away from $25 mil a year is forcing him to make some cutbacks.

I think it is a crime to ask a question like this, and it should be punishable by two weeks worth of romantic evenings with Roseanne Barr and/or listening to the entire catalog of Michael Bolton 'songs'.

You sick fiend! I'm gonna have to add you to my respected user list.
