Virgin Airlines Emblazons Jet with Popular Steve Jobs Quote

It's not quite on par with Hungary's idea to erect a statue of the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, but Virgin America Airlines — based in Silicon Valley — came up with its own creative way of honoring Jobs' memory.

According to, 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.
