Virgin America Has Named One of Its Planes in Honour of Steve Jobs

By Jamie Condliffe on at

People found Steve Jobs inspirational. A Bulgarian school found him so inspirational that they decided to rename their establishment in his honour. Now Virgin America has named one of its planes in memory of him, too.

One of Virgin's newest planes, an Airbus A320, has been emblazoned with the popular Jobs quote "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish". The quote comes from his 2005 commencement address at Stanford University, and was orignally used in the Whole Earth Catalog in the 1970's. According to Mac Rumors, the name was chosen as part of an internal plane naming competition. [Mac Rumors]
