    I am a little bias since I work at Cessna but I thought some of you would like to see this. This is a specially painted Citation Mustang that Cessna uses along with the Veterans Airlift Command to help shuttle wounded veterans to and from rehab and home.

    Now that is one cool bird and it serves a very noble cause. It's only fitting our wounded men and women should fly first class.

    God Bless our soldiers.

    Right now they are selling shirts and posters based on this aircraft and they can't keep up with the demand. All procedes are going to support the plane and the VAC. I haven't heard if they are going to market these to the public to help with financing of the project but I would like to think they will in due time. They have tagged this Mustang as "The American Patriot". The logo is based on Captain America but the character is changed to look like a WWI-WWII pilot and the shield has the four branches of the military logos on it.
