    UAL's 2016 Bid 747

    If this is the extent of UAL's efforts to promote Chicago as the host of the 2016 Summer Olympics I hope it goes to Rio....Pathetic... I hope it goes to Rio anyway, Rio is a far more exciting and cultured city then Chicago.

    If Chicago actually gets the games, maybe UA can do something like Delta did for the Atlanta Games.
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    very lame attempt IMO. i really do like the paint job on ACA's 773. finally putting that massive airplane to a good use IMO...
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    For Chicago's sake, I hope it goes to another city. The Olympics are a sham.

    Madrid 2016!



    I was living in Madrid when they were campaigning for the 2012 Olympics, quite an exciting time. It was unfortunate when they lost and London was chosen as the candidate city as Madrid had made many strides in shaping up the city and was already well underway on construction.

    Well that's a better job then UAL.

    Side note Rio just cancelled the World Cup matches for next month as they have run out of funding...yet they want the Olympics. I'd be surprised if Chicago didn't get it. Mayor Daley knows how to pull his connections and make things happen...aka he's a scumbag politician.

    Albeit not a scumbag of a politician, Bloomberg has many connections as well and New York lost 2012. Tokyo and Madrid seem to be in the lead, we shall see in a few days.

    Didn't work, UA. Maybe try a bigger sticker for 2020.
