ZOMG!!!

Cute as a coffin, er...button, that's it...cute as a button! And modeled after the F-35 no less!

Hopefully, it will end up on permanent static display. I know of a museum in McMinnville, OR.

Cheers,
M.

Well, even the seller is thankfully aware of that and suggests a thorough re-engineering to anyone who would fly it.

What a spectacular waste of aluminum and fasteners, not to speak of work hours...

Man, I'm speachless. I agree, what a waste. Coffin is right. Pretty sure it wouldn't have attained "flying coffin" status.

Not with those Glueys in the back, that's for sure. But, with a very high bypass turbofan, why not?

Lucky for the pilot the gluey 130s wont work mounted like that ;-) a spectacular fail!
