The MontJet is coming along just fine - thank you very much! However, I do
still need those D-Jet fuel burn numbers. :-)

"The plane, with a 31-meter wing span but weighing just 44 kg, was piloted
by a 63-kg student for the trip, which lasted about one minute."

101-ft .....wingspan
97 lb ......plane
139 lb ....pilot

They somehow managed to get it in the air. g


MontBat ...hmm. I like it.
