As it's the 91st birthday of this comic legend, I hope you won't mind my adding a little levity to this thread. Here the great Bob Newhart talks about mistakenly seeing Hitler (and on a plane, too!)...

I hate the word "game changer" because it's so hackneyed and over-used now, but the A321XLR is a very interesting aircraft; have a look at the range ring from DUB:
