STOP PRESS

FAA to open case against Wright brothers for unauthorised flight, flying without a licence, endangering a local school and missing a nursing home when they crashed.

Should be used to continue the pre-credits sequence of the movie, 'Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines'.

The precursor to pilotless passenger flight. If we have commercial companies making individual rocket kits and flying across the channel, why is CASA getting all steamed up? Illegal fishing?

Not difficult I imagine to program the drone to hop across that water and land properly pilotless. It looked a whole lot safer than an egg beater. Soon scale it up for 2 or 4 passengers.

Looked a whole lot safer than base jumpers, microlites and hang gliders etc
