Nice job UT.

Actually, it would seem he is not using the turbine engine to drive the prop. It is actually jet propelled. Crazy Missourian, this guy.

You're right, El. From the site it looks like when the plane is flying level the pipe follows the upward sweep of the bottom edge. That way the exhaust isn't *that* far off straight. Of course with jet thrust, it doesn't have to be *that* far off to be trouble.

They're a threat to national security. They distract you by having a wing walker, and while you're looking up in awe, a cloud of toxic death rains down on you. Damn terrorists anyway! I'm going to go email Bush and tell him to send out a hit squad^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hthe military.

For all we know they might BE national security. On their web site , much of the info on the plane is "classified". They could be IDing air show patrons as suspects.

I wonder if the wingwalker has to take off his shoes before climbing on board?

Not to get off topic, but doesn't that silo look just like a dick?

Certainly not mine

From Yahoo:<blockquote><i>Felix Baumgartner has become the first person ever to fly across the English Channel without the benefit of an aircraft, gliding from England to France wearing only a specially designed flying suit</i></blockquote>

Does this mean we can't rag on UT for no image today?

I just thought I'd help out.
