based on the strong worldwide demand for Liberty's XL-2 aircraft

and dedicated work force. The finance is important as it gives
strength, stability, and resources to Liberty that will culminate
in Liberty's further success in aircraft sales." said Mr.

all-purpose aircraft, worldwide," stated Keith Markley. The
