News, but not the serious kind
Okay, what moron closed the sun roof?
Say, Blog Guy, I saw some photos of a solar-powered prototype aircraft being tested. That’s a pretty cool concept. Have you thought about making a solar version of that Basler BT-70 airplane of yours?
Ah, I hadn’t thought of that. So that would be bad.
No, that would be good. When passengers get hot we sell a lot of cold beers and cocktails, which is how airlines really make their money.
Sure. It took right off, beautifully.
And then what?
Oh, let’s not dredge that whole ugly thing up again. Let’s just say we should have checked the almanac schedule for solar eclipses, and leave it at that.
Right and left: Borschberg prepares to take off.
