    The innovator of the "Very Light Jet" closes its doors...

    Winner of the prestigious Collier Award (Innovation in Aviation) one year to bankruptcy the next... :(

    (It's like Apple coming out with the Macintosh one year, and going bankrupt the next).

    I feel bad for all the employees affected by this. Great idea, but doomed by poor execution and poor timing.
