    Hey I guess I missed this one earlier! I didn't know quite a few of these! The Swearingen Merlin/Metro is also the Kerosene Weasel, the Long Dart, and the San Antonio Sewerpipe.

    Daniel, these were tough! But... something tells me your grandfather would have known. I didn't know them either.
    Happy flying!

  2. Love this! I'm sorry I missed all the fun! I've been under a designing rock (mountain of cover designing work, a good thing!) lately. :)

  3. The Boeing 727 is Miss Piggy? Heh. Is it a gas guzzler? You've gotta tell us out-of-the-loop people the reason for that one.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
