Yes, correct. I remember the 707 story but can't can't recall the name without cheating. Wish it had been Roly Falk on exchange from Avro, he had form.

Damn near gave a bunch of executives an instant promotion from the heart attack the CEO had watching. Heh.

Good job not cheating. I'll give a hint. Remember the Alamo.

Oh yeah. The CEO knew he was watching the company go down the tubes. He was livid at the time.

If you want to get really technical though it wasn't a 707, it was a Dash 80. That became the -135, and there was a difference between the two. Not much of one but there was.

Yeah,yeah. I know. Loved the paint job too. Was one hell of a well placed bet.
