    OK, so it was only one flight, for a short time, and in a shallow dive. It still counts!

    Heh well I guess its up to them to decide!
    Since I have the 1:400 sans bumps, I *would buy* a 1:200 Ice Patrol if it came out *with* all the bits and bumps.
    Any of the 3 liveries. I think the two-tone final Nordair colours are my personal favourite aesthetically. The tail marking has an ice/sea look to it.

    It's a nice plane! I am looking forward to it. Sure looks great in the photos, though I'm no expert on the Electra. It'll do nicely
