Lancair Tigress

The Lancair Tigress was an American homebuilt aircraft, designed by Lance Neibauer and intended for production by Lancair of Redmond, Oregon. Introduced in mid-late 1990s, it was a Lancair IV with a much more powerful engine; when the engine was cancelled just as it was entering production, the Tigress project ended with it. Only prototypes were produced; the concept of a higher-powered Lancair IV derivative was filled by the Lancair Propjet. The Tigress was intended to be a development of the Lancair IV adapted to employ the 600 hp Orenda OE600 V-8 engine, giving it a cruise speed of 405 mph. To accept the higher power and the increased speeds the airframe was structurally strengthened; the engine was cancelled by its manufacturer, Orenda Aerospace, the Tigress kit was not produced as a result. The aircraft featured a cantilever low-wing, a four-seat pressurized cabin, retractable tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration; the Tigress was made from composites, including graphite fiber.

Its 30.20 ft span was 5.30 ft shorter than that used on the Lancair IV, mounted flaps and had a wing area of 98.00 sq ft. The Tigress's wing used a McWilliams RXM5-217 airfoil at the wing root, transitioning to a NACA 64-212 at the wing tip, the same as employed on the Lancair IV; the aircraft had a typical empty weight of 2,400 lb and a gross weight of 3,400 lb, giving a useful load of 1,000 lb. With full fuel of 115 U. S. gallons the payload for pilot and baggage was 310 lb. The sole prototype was deregistered on 27 June 2013 and sold, with the tail number reserved through 2018, it is preserved on a concrete pad in front of the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute building at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Henri Bendel

Henri Bendel, established in 1895, was a women's accessories store based in New York City that sold the Henri Bendel brand of handbags, luxury fashion accessories, home fragrances and gifts. Its flagship New York store was located at 712 Fifth Avenue. Henri Bendel was the first retailer to have its own fragrance, to offer in-store makeovers, to stage its own fashion show; the retailer is credited with developing the shop-within-a-shop merchandising concept, in use in some department stores today. In the Cole Porter song from 1934 "You're the Top" made famous by Ethel Merman, Porter incorporates the line "You're a Bendel Bonnet - a Shakespeare Sonnet", immortalising the brand. In September 2018 it was announced that the owner L Brands would close all 23 stores and end the brand. In January 2019, its physical stores and website were closed. Henri Willis Bendel was moved to New York to work as a milliner, he opened his first shop, in Greenwich Village, in 1895. In 1907, he began branding the brown-and-white striped boxes that are still identified with the company.

In 1913, Henri Bendel was the first retailer to sell Coco Chanel designs in the U. S. After Bendel's death in 1936, his nephew became the store's president and served until his retirement in 1954. Bendel's nephew, who founded Belgian Shoes, died in 1997. Geraldine Stutz was president of Henri Bendel from 1957 to 1986. Stutz had "a legendary eye for discovering the newest designers and using them first," including Perry Ellis, Jean Muir, Sonia Rykiel, Carlos Falchi, Mary McFadden, Ralph Lauren. In 1958, Stutz turned the store's main sales floor into a "U-shaped'Street of Shops,'" which some consider the forerunner of today's shop-within-a-shop merchandising displays. During the 1960s, Andy Warhol was an in-house illustrator. Beginning in 1994, Izak Zenou's illustrations have appeared on Henri Bendel ads and promotional materials. In recent years, the retailer has aimed to grow from an "iconic New York brand" into "a nationally recognized accessories company." Beginning in 2008, the brand expanded beyond the New York store to become a national chain with 28 stores across the U.

S. In 2009, Henri Bendel stopped selling apparel. In 2014, the New York flagship store and website began selling only Henri Bendel-branded handbags, fashion accessories and home fragrances, following the model set at its other stores. Henri Bendel was named Retailer of the Year in 2010 by The Accessories Council. In September 2018, The Wall Street Journal and other media outlets reported that Henri Bendel announced the closing of its 23 stores and ending of its brand after 123 years in business. Owner L Brands said the move was part of efforts to improve profitability and focus on brands like Victoria's Secret. On January 19, 2019 all Henri Bendel stores were closed and its website was shuttered on January 28, 2019; the current Fifth Avenue flagship is located in two landmark buildings, the Rizzoli building and Coty building, as well as a new five-story building. During renovation of the Coty building, 276 "masterwork" panes of glass commissioned from Rene Lalique in 1912 were restored; the glass fills three large windows that comprise the front of the second and fourth floors of the Henri Bendel flagship.

Upon the store's opening in 1991, it received landmark status from the city's Landmark Preservation Commission. Of the renovated Bendel flagship, The New York Times' architecture critic Paul Goldberger wrote: For this mix of new architecture and old, skillfully integrated, holds more promise for the revival of Fifth Avenue than anything that has happened to that troubled boulevard in the last decade. After Bendel's nephew named Henri Bendel, retired from the company in 1954, the Bendel family sold the store to a group of investors. In 1980, Henri Bendel president Geraldine Stutz purchased the store with a group of investors from Genesco Inc. a retailing/apparel company that had owned Bonwit Teller and other stores. In 1985, L Brands acquired the Henri Bendel brand. Limited Brands, the Columbus, Ohio-based company is the parent of Victoria's Secret, PINK, Bath & Body Works, La Senza and operates 2,917 company-owned specialty stores in the U. S. Canada and the United Kingdom. Official website
