Any airline dorks out there have $880 lying around? If so, I’d highly recommend heading to Dallas on August 27 to take a ride on one of the last BAC-111 aircraft still flying. This one is in a sweet executive configuration. You can get all the details here.
Why am I posting about this on a day when I normally don’t post at all? Well, remember Johosofat, the high school junior who created a real Cranky Jackass Award? He has some serious initiative, and he has put together a little business trying to arrange flights on classic airliners. And I’m all for encouraging high school students who love our industry that much.
As of earlier this week, he had 14 people signed up, and he needs 10 more to be able to pay the bill. I sadly won’t be able to make it, but if you can, please send pictures. This would be a ton of fun.
