Early trials of air drops to forward troops show initial promise however 5 seconds later the 30 tonne Sherman did cause the CO to write to 2 families that their sons died in active combat and they should be proud of them. Their remains will be slipped under the door if not in..

Nice try at showing sensitivity to our acrophobes, but it doesn't really provide the full airborne experience. Maybe if we turned it upside down and put it the bottom of a silo. . .

When they said we were getting a three wheeler I rather hoped it would be a Robin Reliant.

Well done Ed, CST is hovering across the Pond as I type.

(Apparently this machine, or one of its various model siblings developed by Piasecki, is at the Brandywine Helicopter Museum in Pennsylvania which I visited unexpectedly a few years ago - not always on display, I certainly don't recall seeing it, though we were in a something of a rush...)

"Looks easy boss, bet my sixteen year old son could fly that."

"It is, my eleven year old daughter designed, built and test flew it."
