I was saying to myself just the other day that there always seems to be some strange aircraft that I have never heard about, come to light that actually was able to fly successfully. Would you have been willing to be the test pilot on the first flight?

Can't help but think Thunderbird 2 was involved in its parentage somewhere.....:eek:

I noticed that it didnít get airborne from the water, in that video. Did it ever?

I think he meant "from the water"....
IIRC the machine is now at Monino.
