The World's First Flying Hotel!

From My InBox:

Wow, the flying hotel and largest helicopter in the world, Cool! The
Hotelicopter is modeled on the Soviet-made Mil V-12, of which there
were only two prototypes ever made. The Hotelicopter Company purchased
one of these prototypes from the Mikhail Leontyevich Mil helicopter
plant in Panki-Tomilino, Russia in 2004 and have been engineering the
world's first flying hotel ever since.

"The Hotelicopter features 18 luxuriously-appointed rooms for
adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel

Each soundproofed room is equipped with a queen-sized bed, fine
linens, a mini-bar, coffee machine, wireless internet access, and all
the luxurious appointments you'd expect from a flying five star hotel.
Room service is available one hour after liftoff and prior to
landing." The Hotelicopter is due to fly maiden journey this
summer(June 26th) with an undisclosed price...
