    LOL... I know we invented them, but have you ever tried to land a Harrier on a moving carrier?

    Also - the catapult only works for take-offs... you have to rely on 4 elastic bands for landing, not an exact art either!!!

    If they had a conveyor in reverse, according to all those who think the plane wont take off, you will be able to land on the conveyor belt and the plane will simply stop. Then all you have to do is to slow the conveyor belt down and bob's your uncle....

    Hey ScoTTy - you did prove it, for sure.
    P.S. any idea when you're going to be moving on to a new motor? I'd love to be in the queue for potential purchasers...! That Miltek sounds sweet and its got to be one of the very best maintained!

    No the plane will not take off without the pressure difference above/below the wing due to airflow.
    Tell you what though that runway would be very handy for testing out your top speed wouldnt it?

    Wheels? Who cares about wheels? Wheels give traction, but planes need thrust. Oh no, I'm getting sucked into the debate.............
