AIRLINERS.NET SOLD TO CAR MANUFACTURER



Luleå, April 1, 2001 - In an unexpected move, Airliners.net, the self-proclaimed "Wings of the web", was sold Sunday April 1 to an undisclosed car manufacturer. "A great day for Airliners.net (now Carliners.net)" says former Editor-in-chief, Johan Lundgren. "We have been in talks with this automobile company for a few months now, it's a good thing we finally got a deal though". Mr Lundgren claims he will leave the aviation industry for good and concentrate on his other hobbies, watching old Simpsons episodes and sleeping. "All those Airbus vs Boeing fights were driving me nuts, I had to get out while I could", he says.
An official from the car manufacturer who prefers to be anonymous said in a phone interview; "That flying stuff does not interest us much. We will have it all replaced with cars and trucks". According to inside sources, the new slogan will be "the wheels of the web".

More will be added throughout the day as this story unfolds.

Well well well,

This must be the best april fool's joke that I've heard, except for the so called story that Belgian drivers who received tickets, could hand them in at their local police office, and they would be filed, as long as the fine was below € 250!

What a lovely day, April 1st!

I had a light heart attack when I saw "Airliners.net sold to car manufacturer", but I didn't buy it. I can spot an Aprils fool a mile away.  Smile

Oh man. I got scared like hell when I saw that. I forgot about April Fools Day, so it took me a while. After I clicked on the press release, and I read all that stuff that made no sense, it hit me..."Airpril Fools Day." I would't be on the web as much if it wasn't for this site. Thanks Johan for the great site!!

Just a reminder to us all. Next April Fools, When Johan puts Skateboards.net, Don't be Fooled. or when Boatliners.net comes into action, don't fall over dead. But especially when April's Shoe Store buys A.net for a day, lets not cover our noses with clothespins. Johan is a sly one he is. But the more we learn, the harder it will get for johan. HA HA HA. Hey JOHAN!!!? Can I upload my picture of Titanic just for advancements...LOL  Big thumbs up
