Hey Steve (Ryan)!

That Potato Bug plane (at 5:45) sure looks familiar, doesn't it.....!!

haha, yeah but they didn't have much to say about it - speechless i guess!

ah the classics, thx for posting that john - very entertaining. many of those 'airplanes' (if they can be called that), i've never seen. honestly what a horror show, and sheer bravery - i can't imagine actually manning most of those except the ones that obviously were never ever going to leave the ground like the eggbeaters - the one at 2:08 optimistically had a lovely fuselage with rows of windows that implied a bunch of passengers haha

love the old accents and jargon - funniest line is at "now, we'll see what we will see", and my all-time fav footage is the 'plump' butcher/rocketman that fails to fly, but manages to light his ass on fire
