    What story ? You started a contest to name your plane. At first I thought "Miss Ellie" but that's too southern. So I figured "Julie" , kinda a plane name for a plain plane. Since I was the only entry ( well except for the guy that thought you should name it the same as it's military designation) , I'd be the obvious winner. I mean who'd name their plane U17 ??? That would be like naming all your kids Steve. " This is my son Steve and his little brother Steve and over there playing in the mud puddle is their little sister Stevie. isn't she precious ? " Seriously ??

    You do that and then I'd have to put hull insurance on it.

    The only 'Julie' I know around here is the better half of Dr. Randy... and she is much nicer looking that that... so you need a more plane name that that.

    Eaton, wouldn't Hartman's cub properly be Steve II?

    Eddie, got any pictures around of the turbine versions of them?
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!
