OK?? These Britts got together and built a flying model of a USAF B 52 bomber.I dont think they would sell anybody one.It weighs 300 LBS.

I bet they got a POT full of money tied up in that sucker! Must be something to see it fly.

I saw another article on this. The engines cost $3000 each, so yes, they have some money in it. I'd be scared to fly it.

Ha funny,,I bought a balsa wood plane kit when I was younger.A new hobby store opened in town.I later bought a Fox model airplane motor to fit it from the same place.The control was a small wire rather than a radio control. I glued it all together good then I thought I needed paint for it.I had John Deere tractor paint so I brushed it on with a big ole brush.I finally had money for that special gas and used a headlight battery to crank it.It started going around in a circle but never left the ground.I took it to the hobby shop and asked the man why it wont fly.He looked at my green plane and asked where did you get the paint? I says it was dads John Deere paint why? He said It is too heavy to fly.

Nice of those Britts to pick a USA plane to make a model of.I have always considered Britts to have very intelligent and skilled folks in their industries because they have built some fine shotguns and automobiles.I used to own BSA motorcycles.I would like to have one now.

I gues when the boys get it flying the Royal AF anti aircrat unit will hit it with a heatseeker.
