saw this story yesterday on BBC website, this is great, although I don't see it solving any of our transportation issues soon unfortunately.
I love it though and can't wait for it to come and visit the US.

Dave - why not? If they could modify this prototype slightly for freight, why couldn't they start mass production to displace fossil-fuel aircraft? The sooner we get rid of fossil-fuel machines, the better!
