When my son was little, he use to think that planes flapped their wings like a bird to fly. I always have trouble on take off and landing, but once in the air I'm fine. I'd rather fly then drive.
EBludger, i'm obsessed with air crash investigations
I think the Nazis had a plane like that - not sure if it was ever built or they just had plans for it (they had lots of plans for very "out there" things before they lost the war). I think they may have got as far as making a prototype, but don't quote me on that. It wasn't exactly flapping its wings, but pretty close to it. Freaky!
I'm obsessed with ACI too. I've seen every single episode ever made, and many of them several times.
(And as they say, a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing - definitely true when it comes to learning bits and bobs off a show like ACI and then having to fly!)
