Sky yachts of steampunk billionaires.

The steampunk aesthetic is catching on among the large private jet crowd.

I know a company in San Antonio that does this for large airliner planes. A few of my college mates worked there for a few years after obtaining their BSc in Aerospace Engineering. I never applied there because back in 1997 that didn't interest me.  I now regret that decision.  Maybe the job was not relevant, but it'd be a bonafide industry entry into my résumé

But what you show above is nothing compared what I have heard they do.  Imagine large granite conference tables inside.  A good amount of work needs to be done to re-balance the airplane and maintain the proper dynamic center (jargon for the shifting center of forces, as opposed to the gravitational center)

That's amazing.  Looks exactly like the inside of the sky yacht I built.  Wink

You know, I do find this a trifle odd too. It's like having a child's drawing in an ornate, gilded frame.
Now I'm not saying this is right or wrong (people should wear whatever they like)
but the clash is a surreal one.

Mind you, just walking into a stately home; you find the place wasn't actually built FOR people. But for the things the people owned.

It's rather sad really when you take a home and turn it into a museum. I feel there is a middle way of going, beautiful but functional. Ornate but hard wearing. Steampunk, basically.

Still like the top picture,. the floral easy chairs with brass gubbins on the side. I may have to steal that. Every easy chair should have a DVI out!

No. He was playing golf. That's a $200 silk Tommy Bahamas polo shirt.  He came back in time to fly to the next golf course.

I guess I haven't been paying enough for my T. B. shirts.  I don't golf, either.

I do own a polo mallet, however...



Cheers!

Needs wing turrets with howitzers serving as carronnades. Just in case one is attacked by air pirates
