While taxiing out of Fort Lauderdale, FL (FLL) the other day, we had two neat sites: Air Force 2 (VP Joe Biden's plane), and a B727 known as the "Vomit Comet". A company called Zero G has a specially fitted B727 that goes out and flies parabolic arcs which creates a "weightlessness" in the aircraft for 20-30 seconds at a time. Here's a shot of the plane. Apparently 33% of the folks have a hard time keeping their lunch down during this flight. Maybe one day I'll be able to save $5,000 to go do this for an hour or so......or maybe not. ;-)
