The pics are nice but can't show the feeling of gliding. I've had the pleasure of beta testing this over the last two evenings and its a sensational experience, right from the moment of being hurled into the air to touchdown - its like tranquility and adrenaline spray-foamed into one bite-size portion and then chocolate-coated. Roughly. And so easy! Easier than flying a powered plane (and lots less chatter from #### betty in control).Great work, John and Jon!

"Inkase your wundering which is which,he is the ugly one and I am the hansum one."I'm glad you clarified that for me. I was wrong, I thought that you were the one in the back. ;-)Whoops, sorry Jon, ahhh, you're both ridiculously handsome and I'm jealous (but the plane looks better than you both). And you're not getting my picture to scare your kids with.RobD.

John,What did we do with the family, dog and sink? There was no trace at the crash er... landing site? I think we lost them during that 5 minute inverted stage we went through - sure seemed crowded :-lolBTW, I actually left the back seat empty to give one the feeling of solitude - never having flown solo myself, of course!:-waveJon Point*************************(effyouthree@hotmail.com)*************************
