  3. This is an unbelievable example of man's ingenuity. Not only is it a near perfect replica of the original - but the guy actually flies it like a pro !!! It reminded me of the first time that I saw this aircraft, at the Farnborough Airshow in the UK sometime about 1974 when it broke the record for the fastest transatlantic crossing. A truly astonishing feat of both engineering and aviation.

    Cheers,

  4. The real Blackbird is a handful to fly. Flying that (apparently) scale model must be intense.
