With a tearful sigh, Mairi kissed her paw, patting it gently against the dusty emblem painted so lovingly on the battered Mastiff's fuselage. A shower of dust and grime shivered free of the faded portrait, a corpulent young lady enveloped in what might have once looked like white lace, blushing behind a fan.

Stepping back, she watched as the crew of the large trade craft packed away her beloved Debutante for donation to the museum at the regrettably red Smirnoff's suggestion. Nimbly dodging the thought that her first airborne love and dear friend might just as likely be salvaged for scrap as displayed in exhibition for its historic journey to Islo, Mairi turned with a swish of her tail and a half-skip-hop to check the drying paint upon her new craft.

Examining her work carefully, she nodded, satisfied with the frozen image in midnight blue ready to spring from the hull. Unable to recall or really care whether they looked like or just ate them, Mairi was more than happy with the visage of the bloodthirsty goat leaping to attack with wicked fangs bared. Her best work yet, she thought.

Leaping into the cockpit of her newly outfitted Spectre, she checked her craft one last time for habit's sake before giving a nod to the the seat beside her.

"Good thing you came on before I started this hiring freeze," she said to the empty seat, "We'll show those lazy bums what we think of their strike!"

Reviewing her roughly sketched fliers that declared no flight crew would be hired until they came to their senses and left off striking to work for the originally agreed on rates, Mairi made mental note to drop them off for publishing on her way through Cidade as she taxied down the runway.

As she eased up the throttle, something between a cackle and a giggle could be heard low under the roar of the engines on take off, the sound of Mairi and the Indigo Chupacabra screaming through the skies together in first flight.

I think I like this new fox. Glad to have you aboard Blue, mate.

Waiting for his Skyleaper to be loaded, the young ferret walked absentmindedly through the Getty museum. Suddenly, an old Mastiff caught his attention. Hm, this one's new, he thought.

As he walked closer, he noticed the plane is heavily modified - there were strange barrels attached to every possible place, pipes leading all over the plane and a lot of what looked like home made machinery. Smirnoff stood in front of the plane, examining it carefuly.

After a while, he lowered his head to read the description in front of him. Smile appeared on his face as he read it through.

"Ah, so this is the flying gas can I heard so much about. Pleased to finaly meet you, Portly Debutante. You sure brought some fame to miss Mairi." he said as he bowed slightly to the plane. He gave the plane one last glance and turned around.

He was still smiling when he walked into his bullfrog, probably thinking about the good old times when he also flew a Mastiff through the skies of Skytopia. After a while, the engines of the big plane roared and the plane started moving slowly. Skyleaper rolled on the runway and took off into the evening sun, and a large sticker portrain a young smiling feline lady could be seen for a moment on the back of the plane - "Join the hiring freeze! Support the moose!".
