Default Boeing 307 Story

As we all know, the world's only B307 Stratoliner was beautifully
restored at Boeing, flown to Oshkosh 2001, then run out of fuel and
dunked in Puget sound. It was then re-restored and appeared at Oshkosh
2003 and is beautiful!.

A friend of mine, Gene, was invited to tour the B307. When Gene
approached the plane, the captain admonished him and everyone else to
"step here, don't touch that," etc.

When Gene reached out to touch something, the captain said, " Please
don't touch that!"

Gene responded, "Why, is it still wet?" The captain turned several
shades of red.
