Because, while we were there, I found this way-cool Cessna O-2A.
It has two engines, one in the front and one in the back.
I've been wanting one of these for years, and there are actually some out there that are in my price range if I'm willing to make ramen noodles a large part of my diet for a couple of years.
Oh, man. That sort of temptation I didn't need.
And then watching it fly...
I may never be able to afford one of those all-powerful warbirds that brings the thunder to the bad guys on the ground, but maybe I can swing the bird that calls down that thunder and tells the bringers where to put it.
