Boeing's Jumbo-Jet Pilots Embark on Flying Food Tour of United States

Yesterday, some Seattle-area Boeing employees got together to decide where to have lunch. The consensus: Pennsylvania. So they hopped in a $300 million 747-8 Freighter jet and flew 2,500 miles to Pittsburgh, where they feasted on sandwiches from Primanti Bros.

Subsequent lunch outings, confirms flight test director Paul Shank, will include a trip to Maine for lobster and Michigan's Upper Peninsula for . . . what, exactly? Well, we've got one idea.

In 2006 , an infamous zebra named Lord Zoltar was murdered and devoured by a pack of vengeful vultures on the UP's pastoral Royal Isle. The Boeing birdmen should therefore take a cue from their wilder brethren and vie for exotic game in a remote part of the country not known for its cuisine.

If only they could wash their zebra cheeks down with a 12-pack of Bell's. Because, you know, pilots can't drink on the job.
