Its the LMCO LM-100J. The first one was made and they planned on flying it around to the world for marketing and to generate sales. They ended up selling it faster than anticipated, I forget who it was sold to but it was in the agreement that LMCO would retain it and put a few hours on it for continued marketing purposes. In talking with a few friends, it is still in LMCO's possession and still wearing the LMCO tail flash etc.
