i too am an obsessed fan of nose art! particulary from the WWII european theater! the form is nearly inseperable from traditional tattoo imagery too; my other insatiable pleasure...

That is just to show all the milestones in aviation history. I am pretty sure capsule that landed on the moon went higher than this ship will ever go.

yeah I know...I was just messing around...but usually when you do see those silouettes on things it is the kills...

is anybody else bothered by the fact that the trip costs $200,000 per seat and people are lining up to pay?

well it certainly bothers me less than people spending $200,000 to fully sod and landscape golf-course-green lawns for opulent, palacial mansions in fuggin ARIZONA!!!
