It's so cute when these small timers think they can just waltz into the Military Industrial Club and order a drink.

The military didn't ask for it. They asked for this and it's super neat-o.

flak attack: Vodka Zombie: Umm... Doesn't Cessna make Cessnas?

Cessna is a subsidiary of Textron.

It's like an onion, man. Layers upon layers!

vartian: The joint venture, Textron AirLand...

Lord. I hope the plane is better than that name.

Do you get the feeling that the Air and Land part of the plane will merge regularly?

So this guy has come up with a fighter jet that's as good as (or perhaps better than) most of the jets that the Navy and Air Force currently have; and costs so much less than the F22 and F35 that Congress could buy twice as many of his planes as the amount of the other two that they ordered, give tax breaks to billionaires, fully fund Obamacare, expand spending on social welfare programs (welfare, food stamps, unemployment, Social Security, etc) and infrastructure upgrades, give more tax breaks to billionaires, and still have enough money left over to eliminate the deficit.

Any guesses as to how long until he gets killed in an airplane "accident?"
