StuffAlert May 2016 - Virgin Atlantic have put up for sale on eBay a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. The aircraft named Lady Penelope was taken out of service last year and was used on their London to New York route. Rather than breaking it for parts the folks at Virgin Atlantic had the idea to sell it on eBay with the hope that somebody will convert it into a restaurant, hotel or something else?
