I learned to fly in a French bath-tub, only then it was called a Socata Rallye...

Hat, coat

I'd love to hear his defense statement in court where he will inevitably end up having so publicly flouted just about every rule there is in the book, and then posted it all on youtube.
Flying onto a shopping precinct like that!
What a leming!

Bwah! A bath-tub with no water is just as bad as beer with no alkyhol. Not even to mention the missing mermaid.

After seeing those giant remote control airplanes on YouTube, with 25-foot long C-130s, A380s, etc, I figure it's only a matter of time before someone puts theirself in one.

i agree, genius should not be punished.

But why did they start with a bathtub? Very ironic. Surely a space frame would perform better. Anyway , looking forward to using that as a transport. Can you shrink it down to fit over my shoes?

Brings a whole new meaning to the old saying about not throwing the baby out with the bath water

Plenty of power on tap, not sure about the sink rate. Batteries will get drained quickly.

No, it's the one from Heathrow, it was seen over the Bath Road during a shower.
