Mythbusters! Adam Savage Needs to Borrow a Large Aircraft in the Bay Area for a Few Days – Won’t You Help Him?Wednesday, January 25th, 2012
Adam Savage would like to borrow your airplane for a few days:
“ATTENTION! Anyone have a 200+ seat plane we can use (no flying) for 2-3 days in the Bay Area? We won’t blow it up. WRITE email@example.com”
See? They won’t blow it up.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking, “What about the Getty Jet?”
But I think that old gas-guzzling Boeing 727* is too small.
But what about the big Google Jets? Either the 757 or wide-body 767 should work.
Now, what are the Mythbusters up to?
*There’s nothing wrong with The Jetty per se, it’s just that it’s old school so your chances of dying on it are one or two orders of magnitude greater that what they’d be on the JetBlue or something. And it’s not possible to upgrade all its low-bypass engines to a more modern design. Therefore it’s expensive to operate compared to jets that weren’t designed half a century ago.
