(Wouldnt let me post in blog because of the IMG /IMG code, so id share my venture here.) I had a thought... I love building aircraft, so why not actually go somewhere with it? Lets go to the north pole! Heres a photo blog to show my progress. Heres to Bill Kerman:cool: THE MISSION: Fly to the north pole, dump the fuel and jet pod, and glide down to Bills new home away from society. Take off- Flies pretty straight. A little shaky because of the glider being attached to a fuel source. Took off around the 80m/s mark. Flight- Flight was pretty boring. Got to altitude and put the SAS on for a while. Almost there! - Altitude, speed and time- About to decouple the fuel and engine- DECOUPLED!- VICOTRY... now just to glide down to a nice soft landing to live out my days in the polar ice caps- It seems we have a problem. The fuel pod glided upwards and cut me in half. FAIL- Pre-ejection- EJECT- Deploy Parachute!- Although he landed safely on the ground in his ejection pod, he was so ashamed that he wouldnt allow for photos. Bill Kerman is still unable to be reached for an interview.
