My dad and i are airplane buffs. We've flown to the Oshkosh Wisconsin Experimental Fly In and have enjoyed the bonding these times have given us. I remember reading about how Howard Hughes painstakingly included; "individually machined flush rivets that left the aluminum skin of the aircraft completely smooth" on his Hughes H-1 Racer he used to set a world airspeed record in that day. Soooo.... at at least flight speeds somebody thought it was worth the extra effort to have as smooth a skin as possible going through the wind.

Cheers,
Thom

The fuel cost discussion can be found at Gas Prices in Canada

We now return to the trailer comparisons that Donna refers to.
