Hmm well that sure explains a lot as no one can paint an aircraft without federal aviation approval. It has to do with the weight of the paint on the aircraft amongst a whole host of other things as it affects the aircrafts operating certificate. I hope that the owner of the Lear jet gave you a free joy ride besides paying you of course for your art work.
Did you try to fix your running toilet yet? You should at least give it a try as it's an easy and relatively cheap fix.
Some of the more interesting ones: personal trainer, sportsmasseuse, a stint as a dogtrainer, a sales person in an art-gallery, interior decorator, an awful two weeks when I flipped burgers until I was fired (the only job I was ever fired from, hehehe!).

I gave it all up to be a software developer.
LOL. Mel ... I can believe the software developer job ... and there's photo-proof on another thread that you are a 007, (shaken, not stirred) ... but I'm having trouble buying the Chip and Dale claim. I just can't see you pole-dancing for chipmunks.
Ecam write: Okay I'll bite, how and why did you paint a Lear jet? How did you ever get the paint job approved? Since aviation is my passion being a retired AC A-340 Captain and all, I'm just curious.
Cheers and the first one is on me..
I used to hang with a group of small aircraft flight instructors who all knew I was an artist. They gave the Lear jet owner my name because he was looking to have a stylized Canadian flag painted on an angle on the tale.
Not one to turn down a challenge, OR a unique assignment ... I painted it!
