LJ35 Pedestal. The fancy computer with the plastic cover on it is our GPS. The other computer is an antique VLF radio.

An example exterior shot of a Learjet 25 (not the same 25 as mentioned previous in this picture). The hangar was too small to take a shot, but this is another one of our 25's.

Side-by-side comparison of the LJ35 (on the left) and the LJ25 (on the right). Basic differences: the engines (for sure; even though a "smaller package," the 25 is MUCH noisier!), the 25 is 4 feet shorter (count windows on left side of fuselage: 4 on the 25 and 5 on the 35) and the 25 has a 3 foot less wingspan. Biggest difference: the fuel bill for the 25 is through the roof!
