Flying blog

Lunchtime break, good time to review what’s come in on RSS over the past couple of hours. Reading a news item on the BBC about Global Flyer, the jet plane in which US adventurer Steve Fossett plans to fly non-stop around the world early next year without refuelling.

The high-profile backer of Global Flyer is Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson, who is also the reserve pilot for the flight.

Got me thinking: wouldn’t it be something if there was a blog from/with Global Flyer during its trip? So I’ve whipped off a quick email to Sir Richard with the suggestion.

If I hear anything, I’ll post it here!
