Virgin boss wants to name plane after Miranda Kerr
Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson is so smitten by Aussie model Miranda Kerr’s beauty that he wants to name a plane after her.
The hell-raising aviation bigwig is set to arrive in town in preparation for the inaugural flight of the VAustralia service from Sydney to Los Angeles.
And he wants to name one of the seven aircraft in the VAustralia fleet after the David Jones/Victoria''s Secret model.
A spokesman for A V Australia has confirmed that Kerr is being considered as the airline''s answer to Nancy Bird Walton - the late aviatrix, after whom the Qantas 380 was named.
"The first VAustralia aircraft is the Didgeree Blue, News.com.au quoted the spokesman, as saying.
"The aircraft are usually female in persona and will likely be named after inspiring contemporary women, who match the brand personality for Vaustralia, he added.
