    Yes , very welcome indeed !. But perhaps with naming the airplane could be helpful as reference to future searches.
    Notice the "no smoking within 100 ft" sign at Command Decision. Doesn't seem standard.

    I have seen this on a few pictures. I assume it is a later 21st century addition safety feature for fueling.
