London Calling

Together with Pete Day I travelled to London Friday to meet Gwen Lighter, whose baby the GoFly Challenge is.

I forget to take a photo, at least until crossing Waterloo Bridge enroute to the station afterward.

The meeting worthwhile if only from the point of view that as it stands, the prototype in the previous post is unlikely to pass the safety scrutiny... from what I can gather due proximity of propeller blades and pilot.

Additionally, disquiet surrounds said pilot absorbing much of the shock of a heavy landing.

Issues to address as ever, as with life itself.

Seems 838 teams up for the competition but the organisers expect there'll be significant attrition enroute.

Let's hope we're not among the attrited.

(Spellchecker accepts the word, oddly).
