Being a soppy ol' git at heart, not to mention a total Anorak (common Brit slang for.. aw, can summonelse explain for me 'cos its a long day) for frequenting such a site, but just take a look at this (http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=1045590)...

Altogether now.. Awwww!!

Looks very cute :}

So, if you're the "anorak" you say you are, can you tell us what the "other" aircraft is (i.e. the one that doesn't have it's model number written down the side?)? Seriously, I don't know!

Reminds me of the Father Ted episode - "This is small and that is far away!"

Just don't try climbing above about 50 ft or so due to the complete impossibility of looking out above!
Wouldn't have to worry about sunburn of course - perhaps just a bit of reflected tarmac glare coming off that huge beach umbrella (or is it a wing?)

Awhhh isn't they cute! (In my thickest Texan accent....:) )

Reminds me of the joke:

One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed. The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee.

Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, “What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?”

The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours and I’ll have enough parts for another one.” :ok:
