Strange Realisations…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on June 14, 2006

…from some of my recent travels.

JAL Cargo 747s are mostly unpainted. Now, I know there are good economic reasons for this, in terms of increased fuel economy, and reduced air conditioning requirements, but…

…is it just that they’re shiny because they’ll be full of shiny high-value high-tech toys?

Perhaps they really should plaster them in blue LEDs as well…

    Nar AA been playing the limited paint trick for years and I wouldn’t expect to find anything shiny inside one of those quite the contrary.
