Sometimes corporate press releases can be just plain odd. Take, for instance, the below… a press release from Convair of San Antonio, Texas, complaining about a newspaper story that apparently claimed that the Douglas C-133 was able to carry twice the payload of any aircraft flying. The Convair c-99, of course, was substantially bigger than the C-133, and could carry more. Rather than simply pointing that out, the press release, letter to the editor, advertisement or whatever it was meant to be goes in a whole other weird direction.

    Humor is usually the best weapon against pretentiousness:-).

    They may have made a mistake not putting the C-99 into production; cargo load would have been very impressive and range spectacular.
