Name that plane


Last Friday the Department of Transportation approved Virgin America as a new low-fare U.S. airline, with plans to be in 10 cities within a year. True to his reputation, Richard Branson is having some fun naming the new U.S. fleet or, rather, having others name the planes for him. So far, they have a Unicorn Chaser, a Jefferson Airplane (named by band member Grace Slick), a Mach Daddy, a Chic Mobile, an Airplane Named Desire, and my own personal favorite, Contents Under Pressure. The first round is over, but you can get in on the next round of naming, once it opens up, at the airline's NameOurPlanes site.
