Since working for Kohler Co. Pays for my planes, and we buy parts from Bemis, I totally agree! Currently, hopper cars of plastic are parked 1 mile from my house and vacuumed into trucks for transport. It sounds silly to those who associate Wisconsin with cheese, but it is huge business in Plymouth (Sargento, etc). They are putting up 3 new warehouses as I speak, some along the rail line.
Back to aviation, the PGA tournament is this summer and our local airport will be swamped with private jets. I've flown on the company Lear 45 out of there before - that would be a tiny but cool 1:400 model.
