News, but not the serious kind
“We almost always land”
Well, it so happens that right now I am very busy designing a successor to the incredible Basler BT-67 airplane.
Oooooh! Tell us about it! What will the new one do?
I guess I can give you a few secret details. The Basler BT-70 will come in new, highly specialized models.
One model is for doing polar research in the Arctic and Antarctic. It has only one wing, so it can constantly fly in small circles. Just what you need at the poles.
Only one wing? Then how do you get it to the poles in the first place?
Oh. Hmmm. There may be a delay on this one. Anyway, another new BT-70 model can take off and fly backwards, so it doesn’t have to waste time turning around at the airline terminal.
So you had to totally revolutionize the aerodynamics?
Nope, I just welded huge side mirrors beside the windows.
Blog Guy, that just sounds totally moronic. Have you made any changes that are truly useful?
Sure. I’ve maximized the liquor cart to hold twice as much as the one currently in use.
So one cart will serve the whole main cabin?
No, this is just for the cockpit.
Okay Blog Guy, do you have ANY real connection to this airplane company at all?
Let’s just say I have the name, and my blueprints are ready when they call, and leave it at that…
