  1. That steady horizon camera tech is marvelous, I love it.
  2. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen. That said, the fairing process covered up some pretty rough stuff. I'm surprised the thing didn't corrode itself to bits, especially if they were beaching it routinely on tours, which some of the TripAdvisor pics show.

  10. If it wouldn't cost me a $10k repower to drop kick my 1GM10 into the nearest junkyard metal shredder it sure would make me happy. I hate the noisy pounding smoking little bastard.
  11. Based on the inverted chevrons in the skinny metal sawhorses I'll say it is French whatever it is.
