Re: Southwest California One?

Count me in for California one as well. I'd also like Lone Star One. Too bad SWA changed the design on the tail. I liked the Southwest titles along the leading edge of the tail.

Re: Really Cool Website for Aviation Accessories

I like the products. This would be a perfect item to add onto Gemini Jet's product line. One type of jacket, and endless customizations. Take this idea before someone in the US does.
