Basically yes.

The concept was to prove something else.

Back in 60 - 90 minutes.

RR - yes a Yank.

sd - very close, but the challenge is variable-geometry. Also Project X fuselage is area ruled. Correct company though.

Three Aussie guys, Shane, Ricky and Jeff, were working on a high-rise building project in Wagga Wagga. Unfortunately, Shane falls off the scaffolding and is killed instantly.

As the ambulance takes the body away, Ricky says, 'Someone should go and tell his wife.'

Jeff says, 'OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.'

Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Fosters.

Ricky says, 'Where did you get that, Jeff?'

'Shane's wife gave it to me.'

Ricky continues, 'That's unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?'

'Well not exactly,' Jeff said. 'When she answered the door, I said to her, "You must be Shane's widow".'

She said, 'No, I'm not a widow.'

And I said, 'I'll bet you a case of Fosters you are.'
