Does any one know what's up with the Braniff 727 image that comes on the screen after every South Park episode?

If you haven't seen it check out Comedy Central right now and watch till the end.

Here's the Wikipedia explanation:

The Parker-Stone production company is named Braniff Productions, named after a defunct airline. The logo (which featured a computer-generated shot of the Braniff airline with the subtitle "...believe it") originally appeared in Episode 101 as a joke, but decided since Parker and Stone had already established Braniff as their company anyway, the logo would close every episode.

I was told that the the same company that owns the airline also owns the tv show.
????? Now I'm no airline expert or 20,000 ex Pan Am Connie driver, but I seem to remember Braniff going tits up in the early 80's.

I watched South Park for the first time last night, and the Braniff plane took me for a ride down memory lane...
