Subject: Re: what "SAAB" stands for


Itīs correct that SAAB stands for Svenska AeroplanAktieBolaget (Swedish Aircraft company). They also make aeroplanes you know. Theyīve made several warplanes for the Swedish Army with top performance. The latest is JAS -39 Gripen (JAS stands for Jakt Attack Spaning, Hunt Attack Reconnaissance). Among the passenger planes you see SAAB340 and SAAB2000 which are small (up to 70-100 passengers) turbo-prop planes. So itīs no conincidence that SAABīs cars look like aircrafts inside :-) //Bollman -- ---------------------------A day in the life...--------------------------- make my_day make: *** No rule to make target `my_day'.
