    Swiss Plane
    The original Learjet was a Swiss design. Bill Lear changed the fuselage, but the engineering and even hard tooling were from a Swiss fighter-bomber project.

  • ch.c.

    To Kurt !
    DONT WORRY……no one knows M1.
    Should be of these holdings….for tax purposes !!!!!!

    Flybaboo is a Swiss based airlines, but very small !

    Enjoy your Embraer E170/190 planes. which every brazilian believes is made with brazilian technology and brazilian money.

    Sorry buddy, you are all wrong. Please refer to one of my previous comments.
    for the E170/190 there are 16 risk sharing partners and I have demonstrated that most planes parts are of foreign technology.
    Reality being…that Embraer effectively designed the planes, but not having the technoploy to build most of the parts needed !!!!!!

    If you wish…..I will be pleased to give you once more all the details. THE OFFICIAL AND FACTUAL DETAILS……. of course !!!!!!

  • Your boy friend Kurt says Hi!!!

    Hey Ch.c where are you???
    Fuck the swiss!!! Let them built their own planes!!!
