    Hi Guys,
    The radial rocket is such a great looking machine.
    On another issue there seems to big problems with the pilots in India, this time testing positive for alcohol before flights. I’m not sure what is happening in aviation, but standards are dropping badly. Educating anyone to be a pilot seems to be having a detrimental effect. I think cranking out young people to fly the big machines may be just pushing the “Ego Button” too much. Let’s hope this push to get more young girls in aviation doesn’t backfire. More mentors, good training and respect of what you are doing, not computer screens and snake oil salesmen!!
