“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
Oregon’s Oval Office
Ever wonder what it would be like to occupy the Oval Office? Now you can find out–sort of–without even having to campaign. In its new terminal, Rogue Valley International Airport in Medford, Ore., has created a replica of the president’s Oval Office, which it hopes to rent out to generate revenue. The faux chief executive’s office, which seats about 20 people, features a copy of the famous Resolute desk and “windows” that display images of the White House Rose Garden. For a unique board meeting or even a small wedding reception, prospective commanders-in-chief can rent the room for $75 for four hours. A 15-minute photo session costs $25.
