Faster. Faster. Faster.
I empathise, believe me (I was caught up in that Pan-Am 2001 Blue Danube
and boots were made for walkin'
mystique too. I remember building Revell
models of the Boeing SST, fer cryin' out loud
) . I don't mind pushing --and allocating resources -- for getting new and imaginative projects underway. Just that.. well sheesh you probably see yourself, lots
of problems still around and not
really that much money --or will-- to cope with it, either. So folks are going to have to sort out priorities, even though that
might not be such a fun thing, to see pointed out.
A lot of you people would have us flying the same twin engined pencils from now until the end of time. If all you're doing is looking to perfect a hull to put new and better avionics and entertainment systems in, my advice is buy a portable DVD player and some cough syrup.
Okay Heav,-- fair 'nuff and again I hear what you're sayin'-- just let's see wha' happens with the SC project though, deal? (because I guess
that'll be a real
bellwether of where things are gonna be headed pioneerwise in the industry, for at least
the next ten/fifteen years or so).
Cause you're still gonna be fartin around for hours upon hours up there.
I feel the need for speed.
Is it just to go fast and that's that, 'cause if so, maybe negotiate a good seat deal on Concorde or even maybe those freelancing MiG-29 pilot-sponsored joyrides if they're still doing that kind of thing these days, then just sit back and drink in -- because... barring that or a Dennis Tito-type ride into space, you're not gonna get it, least not anytime soon. And otherwise, where are you in such a hurry to fly to, anyway?
