Loosely based on several styles of letter and numeral forms observed on various aircrafts at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. The museum is home of Howard Hughes Flying Boat H-4 Hercules (aka, the Spruce Goose).

Jetstream is a clone of Perforate. Jetstream's x-height is higher. The uppercase horizontals are narrower. The lowercase 'a' was made two-story. Without the constraints of the perforations, I was able to better center the crossbar of lowercase 'e', 's' and 'x'. Some numerals have also been modified.

An excellent addition to the structural sans genre begun with Skipper. This deserves a higher rating. If only users kept real-world functionality in mind when they voted.

@emepar7 & @Stewf: thanks for shining your light on this one. I realize it doesn't have that Fontstruct 'Wow' factor but if I build out the character set, I think it will have more real-world functionality. Fabrica is another nice one in the genre.
