I can't help but think how big a grease spot that guy will make on the side of some mountain the day he miscalculates a bit.  Moving that fast, barely clearing ridges, skimming the sides of cliff faces -- it's only a matter of time until he hits an unexpected downdraft or something and ..... BAM!  Game Over.  :o

We were watching that and were thinking, man, no insurance company is going to underwrite that dude....  the best/weirdest part was at the end when it's just the guy filming him as he goes by...you can just hear the wake turbulence as he literally goes ripping by... and yeah, if he loses it he probably won't feel a thing after a split second....flying in that narrow chasm is nuts with the chance of updrafts...

I read that when it first came out in A.net.

Wow...

Next thing you know, we'll be required to submit a blood sample for a DNA profile before we're allowed into the airport.

It is such a shame that this gets posted at the awful Prison Planet web site.  They are full of crackpots and conspiracy nuts that real problems get tainted by the mostly sewer content.

Quote from Article:
One of the passengers had hidden the animal, which he planned to sell, in a big sports bag, from which the reptile escaped as the plane began its descent into Bandundu.

Someone explain to me how you get a 600 pound croc to comply into crawling into a large duffle bag.  And how then do you cart said bag onto a small plane (up a stairwell I'm sure)?  And there were no warning bells?  no red flags?  I wonder if this going to work?  Ah hell, let's give it a shot.

Gee, it's not enough to contend with weather, spotty ATC and even more spotty security...

I always enjoy watching those time lapse videos.  Now if they could just do the same video with the "Benny Hill" (Yakety Sax) music, it would be hilarious.

How much weight does all that paint add to the airplane?
It's got to be at least a ton.
