X-wing Fighter Flies! (briefly)

posted in: quirky, science fiction, space | 0

Some people talk, and some people do. Here’s a group of people who decided to build their own X-wing fighter model (you know, the craft Luke Skywalker flew in Star Wars), and make it fly! We’re not talking a little bitty model, but a model 21 feet long! That’s ambition. Before you look at the video, take a look at their beautiful project.

Now you can watch it fly in two different video views (scroll down for second). Well, U.S. rockets used to blow up all the time, too. But they got better.

Here’s a longer video, showing the setup, etc.
