From today's Page Six:


HURLEY WANTS TO TINT THE TAJ

October 10, 2005 -- NOTE to the Indian government: Lovely Elizabeth Hurley wants to talk to you! Hurley, who's championing the Breast Cancer Research Foundation with Evelyn Lauder, rode on a new Song 747 jet from Boston to New York on Friday morning. She tells PAGE SIX and "The Insider," "I am trying to get a hold of someone in India who could help me. I want to do a huge benefit next year in Agra at the Taj Mahal where we turn the Taj pink for Breast Cancer Awareness [via lights, not dye]." Meanwhile, Hurley, who is reported to be engaged to Indian Arun Nayar and just came out with a beachwear catalogue, is trying a new profession: farming. "I have a farm in Gloucester [England] where I am growing only organic food and raising animals. I just got some new chickens in, and we are only a year away from being certified organic. I want to then produce organic food and sell it in stores."

I thought they were using the Douglas-Martin DC-380 on that route.

(plane noob yaas doesn't get the joke) :(

The news media is always making mistakes when talking/writing about aviation, and this one is particularly humorous to us plane geeks because it is wrong on many levels. Here's a rundown of the hilarity:

The article mentions a "new 747" but...
-- Song flies only 757s, which are about half the size of a 747.
-- Song's parent company, Delta, did briefly fly 747s, but the last one was about 30 years ago.
-- Song's 757s are all quite old. Song does have one plane with a new breast cancer awareness paint job, which is the one they're probably talking about, but it is an old plane. You know what they say about polishing turds.
-- A 747 is a huge plane used for long routes. No airline would ever fly a 747 between Boston and New York, even if Liz Hurley was on it.

If any of our geekocity fascinates, confuses or scares you in the future, don't be afraid to ask. :)

And you forgot to add that Song doesn't fly JFK-BOS! :D
