    I'll tell you what amazes ME: Stratolaunch from Scaled Composites! This thing is essentially two catamaran 747 fuselages with a cargo pod between them. How in the world this thing will stay aloft with that much weight is beyond me...

    :eek:

    How would you like to pilot THAT monster, Cap't Ron? Especially with an off-center cockpit?

    After all these years I still like watching planes land.

    Don't tell anyone, but I'm friggin amazed that a 500,000 pound airplane can fly.

    Since this is a family forum I can't describe the anatomical reaction I had watching that video. :D

    The fact it can fly doesn't amaze me. What gets me is I'm not sure how you could taxi that mother. Besides oversized taxiways/runways you'd need off-center taxi/runway lines for the off-center cockpit.

    I don't spend a lot on a purse, but I somehow spend a lot on purses. I have a bit of a collection of them. My husband calls me a purse whore. I think that's just wrong. :)

    I would need therapy if I only got new shoes once a year.

    Oh my...that's gonna be a painful ride. We took the train from Richmond to Miami once. I will NEVER...I repeat NEVER...take a train again. That was the longest 24 hours of my life. :eek:

    Well, the article stated that it will need a 3.5 kilometer runway :eek: to build up enough lift to leave the ground. But landing that thing off-center? Serious pucker factor...

    Sorry you're stuck inside today. I just dropped by for a minute. I'm on a layover in Los Angeles and my daughter flew in to spend the day with me before I fly back to Tokyo tonight. I think we're going to hike up to the Hollywood sign this morning.

    I almost had to work today, but we had a massive database server failure yesterday. Which is good, because my parents are in town today, and with my bro only an hour away, gonna be most of the family together.

    A 3.5 kilometer runway is less 12,000 feet. That's a normal "long" runway. Denver even has a 16,000 foot runway.

    Length isn't the problem (calm down BB) it's the width I'd be worried about. As you mentioned, landing off-center would require off-center runway markings for the pilot to aim for. The other thing? Crosswind landings would be a b****!
