I once worked with a guy who was in the Dutch Air Force in his normal life. He claimed that they got in some low flying near home by using their F-16 radars as radar guns over the highways....

The bottom pic makes it look like one of those very large coral reef fish you see photos of, a Groper or something like that.

Yeah, like that. As an aside, they was a small article on MSN where some Australians found a massive Sun Fish that had been washed up on the Australian east coast somewhere. It looked like that to just found a pic of it, maybe not  :-X .

No, I am just willing to offload something ...errr...provide a special inducement to person who wants to create something coloured that way.  If no-one does then fine.  The focus of the GB is still on the airliners etc.

Not sure I'd be keen on the thrust line of the United Pacific rail-jet. :-\

The air-cruise-liner looks like it may be Italian; the "fuselage" scheme looks very much like that of the Costa cruise-liner (Costa Deliziosa) my wife & I sailed on last year, a Genoa-based company.



(A little looking later & I'd hazard a guess that it's Costa Pacifica or Costa Fortuna.)




Not, however, Costa Concordia!
