That intro just made me ROFL. I guess we can all agree that these guys have the coolest jobs on the planet – well, next to pilots that is. I’m thinking it should be illegal to have this much fun – but I’m no party pooper and besides, I’d take any opportunity to hang out with them and just talk anything and everything about aviation. Also, it’s like they’re always raising the bar when it comes to flight tests.
Fun Fact: The fictional flying Helicarrier was designed by American comic book artist Jack Kirby. It’s built to be the signature capital ship of the fictional espionage, law-enforcement, and counter-terrorism agency S.H.I.E.L.D.
So here’s the ultimate question after building it: will it fly? We just have to wait and see. Oh and if you’ve seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I’d love to see them recreate the scene where the three aircraft were shooting at each other. Just because. Lol.
