Default New personal jet -OR- Industrial espionage?

Is it just me, or is there an uncanny resemblance between the Cirrus
Jet and Eclipse's Concept Jet? I realize there are only so many
variations on a theme here with a single engine jet, but the choice of
engine mounting and V tail on both acft struck me as a bizarre coinky-
dink.

I don't think that looking at pictures in magazines of the Cirrus jet
is "espionage".

Ok, I guess I forgot to indicate "sarcasm" here?

Aw drat!

Ya' went and spoilt it. We could have worked our way around to the
suggestion that both were partially copied from the Majister...

They both are ******* children of the Fouga Magister and the Heinkel He 162.

I suppose one could have asked the same question about the Duchess and

Yes, and only *slightly* less goofy looking too G

If that Fouga's performance is anything like the Paris Jet (remember
those, kids?) I suspect even the single-engine ECJ would leave it in
the dust.
