    I thought their old ramp launching system was kinda neat. Plus how they did not have water rudders back in those days.
    I would love to have a sign with the old flying fish EDO logo for my guest pilot cabin...

    Hey buddy ,...can ya spare a dime? How about a quarter? How about a dollar? How about a free place to live and some health insurance to go with it. And that chick is a daughter of a Homer preacher.

    Sure he's not your pastor FP? HA!.

    ....of a Homer preacher.
    Around here these days, all you need is the back corner of a damp warehouse, a giant water-pipe, plus an assortment of weirdos in order to have a church and be it's preacher.
