If aviation is music to your ears

If you just can't get enough of aviation, we may have the perfect CD for you. Inspired by a love of airplanes to create what his Web site bills as a new musical genre, avant-garde Belgian composer Bruno Misonne features actual aircraft and airport noises (and in one case what sounds suspiciously like quacking ducks) on the techno-tracks of his new Aviation Music album. The selections also incorporate vocals taken from pilot, cabin and air-traffic-control recordings.

Misonne's curiously titled selections-such as "Early Morning Landing at Heathrow," "Propeller Symphony" and "Johannesburg Airport Tower Party"-might not be for everyone, but you can judge them for yourself by listening to samples at

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
