Big Bunny: the Playboy jet

Hugh Hefners Playboy Jet is probably the most awesome airplane ever made.

With Playboy booming in the seventies, Hefner had some dollars to spend. And what better way to do this than ordering your own private jet with possibly every option he could take. It had a shower, movie theater, disco, lounges, food, and last but not least, girls!

The Big Bunny, as it was called, was a McDonnell Douglas DC-9-32. With sales going down in the late seventies, Hefner was forced in 1976 to sell the plane. It was bought and used by Venezuela Airlines before being used for mechanics training.

Have a look at the gallery and video below and judge for yourself. Is this the most epic jet ever?
