As you've read by now, HondaJet brought its first production aircraft to EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh this week. And since you've already seen a lot of details about this sexy jet, let's skip to the good stuff, and see what she looks like up close!
I visited the HondaJet tent at Oshkosh on Tuesday, though calling it a "tent" is probably an understatement. They had an impressive display, including everything from their generators and motorcycles, to their ASIMO robot, who performs several times a day. Without an appointment, I approached a guy who was wearing a blue HondaJet golf shirt and asked if I could take a look inside. A few minutes later, a public relations woman was at my side. It turns out, they're Jalopnik fans.

On the Honda Jet, a folding table is stored in the wall, between two facing seats on each side of the cabin.
Skylights in the HondaJet's lavatory are a nice touch!
Just for fun, here are a few photos of the plane in action, because we haven't seen many that weren't produced by a pro for Honda.
