Virgin America Plane Dedicated to Steve Jobs

Plane stays hungry and foolish.

Burlingame-based airline, Virgin America has dedicated a plane in its fleet to the late Apple Co-Founder, Steve Jobs.

A Virgin America spokesperson told Mac Rumors, that the plane with tail number N845VA, has "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish" tattooed on it. The slogan was chosen after an internal naming competition.

The quote comes from Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford University commencement speech.

"Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. Thank you all very much."
