According to MacRumors.com, Virgin Airlines -- perhaps best known for flying homeless chihuahuas across country -- has dedicated an entire jet plane to Jobs. To be sure we know which plane is his, the airline has painted one of Jobs' famous sayings, "Stay hungry, stay foolish," on the side of the Airbus A320, just below the cockpit window.
The quote came from Jobs' 2005 commencement address at Stanford University, where he noted that it was originally used in The Whole Earth Catalog in the 1970s.
A Virgin America spokesperson explained to MacRumors that the name was chosen as part of an internal plane-naming competition. The plane, with tail number N845VA, first flew last fall, shortly after the tech master died.
