I posted this info separately from the last Honda thread as the movie clip might specifically interest others who might not have looked at the other thread.
The Honda jet and engine are both very, very interesting - tempting to call the jet son of VFW-Fokker 614. Remarkable to see Honda return to the engine-over-wing concept that first flew on the 614 over 30 years ago!
