LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation’s Chairman Emeritus Robert Duncan and his wife, Karen, surround themselves with the things they’re passionate about: aviation and art. So, when Duncan Aviation acquired a new Citation M2, they wanted the jet’s paint scheme to reflect the brush strokes of an abstract artist. They also simultaneously took the term “green plane” to another level.
