it sounds like a joke, but it looks like they mean it....


Remember a dream you have always wanted to follow?

And, you knew if you did, it would make a difference?

Well picture an aircraft with wingspan of 71 feet, a fuselage 33 feet long, a
propeller with an 18 foot diameter and the design characteristics of a model
airplane powered by a rubber band! Now, picture this aircraft carrying a pilot
then a pilot and a passenger to an altitude of 100 feet and cruising at 30 mph
for an average distance of a mile. You have just visualized the Rubber Bandit,
"the largest, and world's first piloted rubber-band powered aircraft" and the
dream of George Heaven.
