San Francisco Giants Get Bearded Virgin America Plane

The Bearded Plane

Yesterday Virgin America unveiled an Airbus A320 aircraft dubbed “Fly Bye Baby.” The plane features an enormous Giants logo, an “SF” painted on the engine and a beard draped across the cockpit in honor of Giants closer Brian Wilson. “As the only airline headquartered in San Francisco, we’re thrilled to renew and expand our partnership with our hometown team,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush in a release. “Our success as an airline is a credit to the outpouring of support we have received from the Bay Area community.” The Beard was all the rage over a year ago — Their timing might be a little off. Lets see how the Giants fare out of the gate this season. -TO
