Simon Cowel says.."Other than the coolness factor of the jet- I would say this velo looks pretty uncool...Funky lines made even funkier by the disco paintjob exacerbated by the impulse engine strapped to the back and the dilithum crystal maws on the top, whew! load of dough and time here! Obviously somebodies in love with this, but I just cant say its idol worthy".
On the other hand- i am just going to say its a bit over the top- which is good cuz its an airplane-

Default Great Story on The Witchcraft

Neat story at CBS on the B-24 called the Witchcraft. Flew 130 missions without an injury or abort. One crew member tells the story of how they changed the supercharger on the B-24: cute.

Talking Reynosa I supposa...

Q: What do South Florida and Reynosa have in common?? (I just realized after seeing the "plane pic o' the week")

A: No matter where you go, you're always stuck behind an "ass" when you're driving!

Okay, after reading Clutch's statement (good one) then segway into Spodman's.......

Sorry, just kidding. The setup is just to good. Never mind Chrissie, I've done enough.

Yes, there are some pictures on my website. Apparently he got to low on final with the engine at idle, and it would come back up to power in time. The describe it as a incident with minor damage, but it's in rough shape.

Default Love those seaplanes

Here's the ultimate multi-passenger seaplane. Made exclusively for those charter Alaskan trips or island hopping. I believe this one charters to/from Disney-Hong Kong to Fantasy Island-UK.
