And from the "I know you all won't give a rats ass department™"....

Donnie tears off the page of his daily desktop calendar featuring warbirds, and low and behold...Tuesday, March 7th 2006 is.....(drumroll please) The Boeing B-29 Superfortress! Uncanny eh? Coincidence? I think not! (insert The Twilight Zone theme music here)

:D

AWESOME is not enough. Also,doing those stunts with something that took so much time to build. WOW!!!

One of my pilots was into R/C and built an exact replica of a Shorts Skyvan (twin engine, fixed gear, high wing cargo plane) About 6 foot wingspan, as I remember. We all went out to see the test flights at a local RAF base. The model flew beautifully untill it entered the ILS beam, which jammed the controls and caused it to roll over and go straight into the runway. We carried away about a bushel of very small parts. OUCH
