A First Look at Richard Branson’s Underwater Plane
The billionaire has found a new toy to play with.
Sir Richard Branson is so rich, he’s running out of things to do with his money. The founder of Virgin already owns his own private island with boats, a grand mansion, and numerous other rich-boy toys.
But now, Branson has taken his collection one step further with the world’s first underwater plane.
The billionaire invited a host from The Oprah Winfrey Show to tour Necker Island, a 74-acre island in the Caribbean, and take a ride in his new gadget. The “Necker Nymph,” as he calls it, is an aero submarine that coasts through the water like an airplane. Sitting three comfortably, the submarine comes complete with scuba gear.
Branson is the first in the world to own one. Naturally.
He described his ride in the Necker Nymph as “brilliant.” Yes, Richard, we’re sure it was. (Daily Mail)
