Yeah I know Red Bull flew an Edge 540 through a tunnel in Turkey, but that ain't an Edge, that ain't a tunnel and it's you that's the turkey...

The extra 2 engines did not give the desired improved performance, but did result in more cabin heat.

Very difficult judging, special mentions for two readings of my mind:
Nutty - Amazing, A state of the art warbird, A state of the art military transport and we have all ground to a halt because the two locally sourced plywood "interfaces" are 8 foot too short
Traffic_I_E_W - Is it just me, or does that A-10 look surprised?

But the winner by a narrow margin is fdr - WARNING: Open NCD before MASTER ARM to ARM

I am currently carefully wrapping the CST for dispatch as slung load on the next passing Chinook .
