    Continuing on its highly popular 747 Destruction Tour where flyers are encouraged to glimpse the plane before it is carted off to a boneyard, United will allow you to bid for a chance to have the plane towed to your event. They've had several final flights, painted it retro, put it on their menus, brought it to family day, made a months long media campaign to a clueless obliging press-you'd never know they killed it. Look all you like but you will never fly it again-turning aviation backwards one whole half century at a swoop.
