Hello again everyone.

I keep reading about aircraft manufacturers struggling to extend
the range of their aircraft, and i was just wondering why not use
drop tanks?  After all, if the plane can ferry an engine under
the wing (making the plane appear to have five!), then why not
drop tanks?

Keep up the great-to-read posts!
