You know, I spent the weekend with Mike and his wife last month. He said he wasn't going to pilot it on this go around. Boy, was I surprised to see him climb in it. I bet his wife was ticked. She has to be one of the most awsome women around. He does some amazing stuff, and she is always right there to support him.

I tried to get him to let me be some of the "weight" that they had to carry, but he wouldn't let me. Had to try anyway eh!

What a ride it was I bet! He showed us footage from the first flight that not many have seen yet. Watch for it to come out on the discover channel! Well worth any price to buy a copy when they release it.

Way to go Mike!!!

Hey Ed,
Hows about taking a fellow Montanan along next time you go visit an aeronautical legend? That Montanan being me, of course. You can pick me up at the Conrad airport. I pack light, and don't eat too much.
