20 years newer aerodynamics does make a difference.


And 40 years makes an even bigger difference.
Nimbus 3 first flew more than 35 years ago!

I could only go as a guest, Dave. But, yes. We are getting old. And, I assumed that Concordia and initial JS1 Aero is pushing 10 years old now, too. So, it is closer to 20 than 40 years of Aero Evolution.

Maybe at Cordele,
