Airborne at last (2)

…and it just gets better and better. Minutes after landing in the Mirage we were climbing into a new Meridian. If the Mirage is impressive, the Meridian is even better (and of course more expensive).

There are quite a lot of airframe changes, and although the standard six-seat fuselage plug remains the same, the wing has been modified quite a bit. The empennage has also been strengthened which does make me wonder about the non-strengthened JetProp, although it has to be said that they're not falling out of the sky.

If you don't think about it too deeply, operating the Meridian out of the UK should be fairly reasonable - at least in terms of fuel costs. Now, where can I get my hands on a JetProp for comparison?
