                                        Austrian company Diamond Aircraft Industries claims to be the third largest manufacturer of light
                                        aircraft in the world.  I don't doubt it.  Some 3,500 DA.20s and DA.40s have been produced both
                                        at the parent plant in Friesach, Carinthia and also in Canada.   The above DA.40 is owned by a
                                        Moorpark, California corporation and based at Santa Paula Airport, where I captured it basking
                                        on the ramp in August 2007, whilst the one below was at El Monte Airport in October 2012.
