That airplane has one of the skinniest fuselage than any plane I've ever
seen except one I made myself in the back of Mr. Elgarts class!!
Looks like a mini Concord even.
You'd think a plane meant for cargo would be fat instead of skinny?
Most be converted from some other use. Like bringing supermodels to the
runway show.
