  2. Hi Chris,
    So nice to have met you and hope to have a dinner with you and the lyrical waxer soonest! You have our details.

  3. Thanks for posting these pictures. This is one of the most brilliant designs for airplanes since Brannif painted their planes with Calder designs. I don’t know why we can’t get U.S. companies to use more humor in marketing. We are just so stuck up, I guess.

    Thanks for your perspective.
