This article contains information that I had never known before and had long been curious about. I'm sure others will find it interesting as well.

As for how to find the planes, I'm sure the facility operator just points out and says "it's the white one" lol.
With all the upheaval going on in the industry I'm just glad someone still knows how to have fun.
