No, it was a local Google search, but I guess they always run in tandem, because that is how I watched them as well. I do know there is a small spotter plane that directs the water drops and makes sure everyone gets the hell out of the way when those beasts come in.

They also make some nice Sea Doo's, but their executive jets are second to none! Ripon, how about doing us a favor. Go to the company and take some pictures of some of the planes being built. That would be great to see!

They also make nice sleds



And trains too!

I've been in a couple of their plants up here in Montreal a few times and the Globals are pretty sweet jets, but taking pictures would be a highly problematic endeavor. ITAR and industrial espionage issues would rear their ugly little heads. Apart from the fact that the billionaires that own Globals expect privacy and discretion.

I'll talk to some people I know there though, and see if they can get me some neat stuff.
