--ya man! I guess one of those babies would work! bofors rang a bell, they been in the biz of knocking down aeryplanes for a long time now. And being sweden, they sell to anyone with cash most likely. Is that plane one of theirs as well? I remember quite a few years ago reading about their sonett (sp?) that could fly sideways.

For a small country they got rearranging steel into interesting parts way down pat.

funny story. many moons ago I was working a tradeshow. Small show only a coupla booths, military jazz. Our booth was this whizzbanger like in the picture sorta. It was fairly hefty, a domestic made missile, forgotten the name now (AIM?-dunno, had small fins on it), but it was pretty big, like around 12 feet long. The show was in a private ballrom in a hotel in atlanta. Myself and one other guy get the nod to go do the booth install. We meet the truck on the sidewalk, sidestreet of the hotel, get the crates out. The crates for the booth fit, but the missile is like too dang long! It just AIN'T getting in that freight elevator to go upstairs. So here's me and this other guy with our tools out on the sidewalk in atlanta, all kinza folks walking by and driving by, disaasembling this whizzbang atlas rocket action to get it into pieces so it would fit into the elevator! HILARIOUS! Getting some serious stares and commentary from the townfolk and all. heheheheheheheheh Got it in chunks, up it went, re assembled, no one knows nothing,. just doing our jobs!
