Wasn't it also the very first plane to light the tail up with logo lights?

I don't get what is sad about it.

Considering that many have strong feelings about preserving older civilian aircraft of various airlines, I'm a bit surprised that people seem to be negative in having a go at this. Would have been a nice adittion in a museum.
|Quoting Daysleeper (Reply 8):|
I think there are many more interesting or historically significant jets which should be considered before this one. I'm a little lost as to what's special about it....
Then again I'm perhaps a little biased, as speaking from a personal perspective I'd be happy for them to turn every commercial jet thats been saved into beer cans if they could make just one Concorde airworthy...

By all accounts Barbie's efforts at boyfriend modification were only partially successful. In the six-year span from 1970 to 1976 that Playboy owned the aircraft, it made but 191 flights. Nearly all were between the Chicago headquarters of the magazine and Hefner's newly discovered digs on Charring Cross Rd. in the Holmby Hills.

I used to live in Saint Louis right across the street from Lambert Field in 1974 and saw the plane out my apartment window all the time. The Bunny Jet was based at STL and was actually owned and operated by Ozark Airlines and was under lease to Playboy.

This aircraft was maintained by Purdue Airlines at the Purdue University Airport.
|Quoting milesrich (Reply 17):|
Ozark did for a number of years at Lambert, but the airplane was not owned and operated by OZ, it was just maintained by them.
