    It makes me wonder if they want to also
    become a manufacturer. Imagine if they
    became top members of the military industrial
    complex - and the types of minds they could
    bring to the table. Scary, eh?

    Read this comment.it was posted below the article.LOL

    With the stock at $625/share, why don't "the boys" just buy the Norwegian air force and be done with it. At a minimum they'd have landing rights on 2 continents. Who's gonna be the next Google VP, Burt Rutan?
