Duke is an aircraft that looks just ''right''

Apparently it takes the curvature of the earth to get airborne.

I always thought that Beechcraft tried a little too hard with the Duke and it ended up looking slightly ridiculous.

This is an interesting pic. No photoshopping or trickery, the picture was taken as is... it is not modified in any way, nor is the prop.

Is that you, Jaba, with the green T-shirt and black jeans?

I'm sure the one with the forked tail is Dr Killer, but I just cant quite see who's got tails, and who hasn't.

I'll be collecting a couple of stubbies for getting it partially right?

'cept we all had to be half responsible, so we could get home. "Drano" was the drink choice of the day.
Nice spot to go for that $1200 hamburger.
