Passengers in presence of greatness
PASSENGERS on a flight from Chicago to Los Angeles did not just get to travel with a world-famous celebrity, they also had their picture taken with him.
Oscar, the Academy Awards statuette, rode in first class alongside film academy president Tom Sherak before making the rounds during the five-hour flight to pose for photos.
Passengers used mobile phones and pocket cameras to snap pictures with the Oscar. The awards are usually shipped to Los Angeles with little fanfare.
