I’m sure this deal is really going to help our economy out. Maybe we should supply them with some ICBMs from North Korea and some Soviet tanks as well.

Yeah, I know. Since it’s the hands down most sold design in the world, I’d expect there’d be a few. I was just admiring for his machine characteristics. A lot of them are air ambulances, transports, air-ferries all over the world.

There was talk in Tokyo a few years back, might have even been a study, on opening a passenger service along the coast from Tokyo Central to Osaka. It was supposed to service a number of island stops and just a few overland transits that was based on the idea of buying a bunch of off-shelf but new MI-17s and then refurbishing them into air buses.

Never got off the ground. But I’d loved it if it had just for the chance to ride one.
