Some people have just too much money on their hands!

An Amazing Model Airplane

Actually has 8 "real turbines" at about $1500 each! Took over 2 years to build, and has a wing span of about 22 feet. Takes multiple pilots, as there are so many things to control. Think they were nervous during the maiden flight? Unbelievable that someone would make this - all real turbines!

Check out the movie link below to see the first flight. (click photo to access video)
