I've heard of "Snakes On A Plane," but "Abe On A Plane?" While searching for some Lincoln-related news today, I stumbled upon this article. Seems that Madame Tussaud's opened a new wax museum back in the fall in Washington, D.C. and as a publicity stunt, it flew the wax figure of Lincoln in First Class on Delta Airlines from New York City to Washington.
Like most wax figures, this statue resembles, but doesn't quite "match" the photos of the historical figure being depicted. Still, it's sort of eerie. Check out the woman flying next to Abe. She looks really creeped out, doesn't she?
I always knew Lincoln operated on a "higher plane" than his political rivals. Now we have proof.
