Thank you to VIRTUAL AVIATION - - for providing their absolutely astonishing simulator. (Seriously, the folks in the back had to keep holding on when the plane tilted.)

Thank you to GORDON BURNS - - for the wonderful voiceover harking back to the Krypton Factor.

And many thanks, of course, to MATT GRAY - - for his excellent directing, and MORAG HICKMAN - - for stepping up as a pilot.

(All three of us got the plane down on a perfectly still day with no wind. But an autopilot could do that. That's not nearly as interesting.)
