Okay. I have a green light and I think I have a microphone. Again, Mark Streeter here. Jamie Baker ran out, like I just did, but he will be right back. And we're very pleased to have with us Aircastle. We have Mike Inglese, the CFO, we had Ron Wainshal, the CEO. Ron and I share a love of gluten-free food, just an anecdote I will throw out there. But besides that Aircastle, I think transactions over the last couple of days, between ILFC, which is priced to deal right now in the unsecured market, Air Lease having priced an unsecured deal yesterday, I think the writing is on the wall for aircraft leasing companies, as far as I am concerned. And Aircastle was really one of the first to shift gears and sort of pursue a credit rating, which I think is going to pay benefits down the road. So we'll hear from Ron and Mike, an update on the story and on the capital structure.
Thanks everybody, and thanks for the plug on gluten-free. I think most of you guys know a little bit of our company, I’ll just spend a moment talking about us for those who don’t.
