I wanted a GeeBee until she said it looks like a...


Now I can't look at the GeeBee and not think of a male member.

I suppose there's a certain Freudian aspect to all airplanes to some degree. But this one really has the bona fides. So to speak.

Lesson learned. Never take the wife to the LHS.

Oops. Another lesson learned: Scientific term for male anatomy taught in 4th grade is considered objectionable on rcgroups. Maybe that's because so many planes look like one?!?

I'm going to call mine GB.

Your wife has an interesting point of view.


lt would be impossible to draw a caricature of this airplane — it already is one.

Whatever poeple say about the look of a Gee Bee, it is and will always be one of the most exciting airplanes in the history of flight!

Buy one, you will love it! Really!

The Gee Bee is the perfect example of the golden age of air races.

It's almost worth getting just to have. It was practically nothing more than an engine nacelle with wings. Pure power.

Buying one is inevitable, of course. The GeeBee is too unique to ignore. But I picked up the Carbon Cub that day instead. She says she feels bad that she spoiled it for me. But it's hard to take her seriously what with all the giggles.
