As an engineer (albeit retired), I appreciate the specification to two decimal places. For an airplane, I suppose one could make the case that in flight it has the virtual weight of zero. In any case, nice composition !

They weigh too much plus passengers.. now you know why I'm so terrified of flying.. it's just so unnatural :) super composition here Karl.

I don't know the answer to your question. Does this sign not apply to earthly vehicles? I know in this country so many folks are obese the airlines have had to enlarge their seats. Love that sky!

Funny, but I think a plane weights much more than that...
