Wow...those are pretty cool photos. I'd never heard of the Diamond DA-42 before...a diesel powered plane! I'm a oil-burner fan of sorts, but the only diesel aero-engine I knew of was the Jumo 205 from before WWII. It's impressive to think of the technology that must have gone into designing a small, light diesel with power output like that.
And where did the photo of the Beriev come from? I thought they only made a couple of prototypes of those planes. Is that an old photograph from the 1980's or something? I hear that they have been talking about putting the A-40 back into production, which would be kind of cool...Russians seem to love their jet-powered flying boats.
And the "Beware Of Low Flying Aircraft" sign is really funny; I wonder if it is really damaged, or if it was made to look like that as a joke. I've seen signs like that before.

W0W! That first picture proves that KLM airlines sure know how to throw a party. I sure hope they never decide to crash a party.
