Holy Cow!

Holy Cow!

I am flat out amazed!

Y’all, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has built an airplane that flies with no—repeat, no—moving parts.

Before you laugh and scoff, just remember that’s MIT—an organization that deserves and commands respect. That didn’t say they could build it—they did build it. They didn’t say it would fly—they did fly it.

I am impressed!

I’d explain it if I could, but I can’t. For more and better info, go to

Admittedly, this was a model airplane. It will not carry pax. You will not see one at your airport in the near future.

You don’t have to plan for it next year, but I do think it illustrates how unbelievably fast our world is changing. Can we even imagine what our future will be like?

I can’t.

I keep reading that this will happen or that will happen. But things seem to be happening faster than we can predict.

I am simply awestruck!
