The closest I got was watching the introductory videos over breakfast. And now I’m about to leave for the weekend to go up to Seattle with my wife (which is great honey, honest ;-)), so it’ll probably be next week before I get a chance to zoom around in the sky.

In the meantime, how about checking out the archive of past Fanboy Fridays? There’s something in there for just about every plane nut. And hey, enjoy your weekend! I know I’ll enjoy mine.
