Where was this when I was building my 1/4-scale Pitts!
I'll bet it would be a real pain to get a smoke system on the little match deal though.....

Old Jonathon Winters bit about a guy trying to fly:

He taped 147 pigeons to his arms. Worked pretty good too...
he was airborne for nearly a minute before some fool threw a bag of popcorn into a stone quarry and he bashed his brains out.

One safety feature........

Avoid using strike-anywhere matches or the flies might decide to extract some revenge by attempting a Kamikaze attack and burn down your house.!!! :D

MAN! Some folks are REALLY sick!! :eek: It would never work. I tried the same thing some years ago by fastening some of those sticky fly strips to my armpits and attaching about forty cryogenically comatose flies to each side. As I was jumping off of my roof, I gave them all smelling salts to rev their engines. :cool: Unfortunately they all died from the smell just before we reached takeoff velocity. :(

That's the reason for SOME of my brain damage! What's yours?? :confused: :)
