I was browsing through my latest Air-Britain magazines I subscribe to today, and to my amazement I see a photo of a real Astazou powered executive aircraft which looks remarkable like what I've done to my Basset.  A google image search produced some more pics.

This is a Beech-SFERMA PD.146

Indeed Robert,

the Beech Sferma Marquis, not many of them were built.

Cats are not real. 
They are just physical manifestations of collisions between enigma & conundrum particles.

Any aircraft can be improved by giving it a SHARKMOUTH!

That would seem to be WELL over-powered! Consideraing the same two engines are used on a Jetstream and a Pucara that thing's got to go like CRAZY!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

From the mountains in the background that pilot would welcome all the "push" he could get! Looks cool!

The caption next to the photo in my magazine says it's a Beech Travel Air fitted with a swept tail and the Astazou engines to offer 'fast & comfortable' travel
