It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky, Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.
— Helen Keller, at age 74, on flight around the world, news reports of 5 February 1955
12 engines carry 66 people across the atlantic
Nick,Do-X is good, 12 engines is good.I won't give the 66 people though. There's a more exciting number out there somewhere.Cheers,Rodney
Oh you wanted that bit here ys go. On October 21st, the plane took off carrying 169 people consisting of 150 passengers, 10 crew and 9 stowaways, easily breaking the world record for the number of people aboard a flight. A record that would not be tested for 15 years. Weighing 48 tons, the plane taxied for 50 seconds before slowly ascending to only 650 feet. It flew for 40 minutes at a maximum speed of 105 mph finally landing on Lake Constance.N
Well done Nick! Hear us clap!
