Pilot jetting in from the USA...
...so it's not Ben Collins, then...
The Paper Aircraft Released Into Space team is nervously eyeing the skies ahead of Saturday's planned launch. According to the latest predictions, it's not looking too promising, with a good chance of rain and cloud over the weekend. Of course, conditions today are absolutely perfect here in the Iberian peninsula, and are set …
Oi - we've been slaving away for weeks on the Vulture 1, on and off, when not sitting on our hands staring at computer screens.
You'll get the full, no holds-barred construction pics later this week, as promised.
The reason for holding back further details is that we got word that North Korea is planning its own version of the aircraft - dubbed the "Heavenly Kim Jong-Il Chariot".
Accordingly, secrecy is paramount ahead of the launch if we want to keep our space plane tech from falling into the hands of godless commies, who'll doubtless use to to nuke Seoul.
So now you know, you impatient whippersnapper.
Keep up there at the back, we've already been told. Peña Negra, Avila. However much I'd like to be present at such an historic event the thought of a 5 hour round trip from Madrid is at the moment rather putting more of damper on things than the predicted weather.
What we don't know is an estimated launch time window.

I was hoping you might have got the eponymous Ms Hilton to waggle the joystick for you. I understand she has appropriate experience and there are less countries she can fly into these days. That 747 she "borrows from a friend" would have made a nice chase plane too.

I have a Canon A560 too, and like many people I have experienced a battery problem. The camera uses AA batteries and regardless of whether I use fully charged rechargeables or fresh alkaline batteries, the camera can just manage to switch on and die after taking just one picture.
I haven't tried lithium batteries as it would just be a waste of even more money. I really really hope yours works properly. All the best!
