    You were talking about cleaning some stuff, and you told ACEPILOT109 to head down to the museum. I figured you volunteered there @BlackhattAircraft

    He sounded like a great guy. What a chance he got, flying this plane! I bet everyone wanted to fly this. Is that true? I know you work there.@BlackhattAircraft

    Wow, this is amazing, I work at the museum that owned the N9mb and though I didn’t know David that well, I had seen him fly on multiple occasions and I believe I heard him speak about flying the wing once. @CobraHueyIndustries

    It was a very hard project, but @BogdanX helped make the wing so it could fly. I’m glad you like it!@Tang0five

    Nice simple flying wing, good that you’ve asked for advice and credited their input. Must say a flying wing is pretty ambitious, I remember trying to do one before you could nudge pieces together and the handling was all over the shop!

    Hey, not bad! Could use some more detail and maybe some insignias, but solid! Flies great, looks pretty nice, heh, it reminds me of my old days when I started out, I built one of these too. Not bad!
