    hey there Folks,

    I have been trying for a long time to get you services to coat your non combat aircraft with teflon instead of paint which could drastically reduce fuel cost even making some aircraft capable of going twice as far with same fuel load that would mean no KC-x replacement requirement, since we would not need as many tankers to refuel the combat aircraft!
