  6. Michal, welcome! Thanks for showing us a scheme I've never seen before. Beautifully done!

  14. Absolutely gorgeous, Michal. I have a soft spot in my heart for the early straight-winged jets and especially both major versions of the F84; straight AND swept wings. (Same with the Navy's F9 aircraft)
