Turbine Toucan sets a record

The Turbine Toucan has set a record.  This plane is an amazing piece of engineering.  I can’t wait to see it in an airshow in the future.  The most amazing thing is that testing on the plane only started this last summer.  I’m sure that are many adjustments that will make this record short lived because the plane will soon break the record again.  And let’s not forget they had an extra 300 lbs of fuel on board too!  I think we’ll be hearing a lot about the Turbine Toucan in the not too distant future. 

Did I mention it is a pretty plane to look at too?  Image gallery.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
