Am I the only one completely appalled by this video for several reasons??
It is not flattering to aviation, African's, the EAA, or anyone associated with it.
The only thing I admire is the single-minded dedication of the person pushing the project through.
This video would make Orville and Wilbur roll in their grave.
When one (if not more) of these guys gets killed, and it's only a matter of when...not if... I don't want the EAA anywhere near it.
They have no scientific approach, no technical skills, no raw materials... They don't need donations, they need an education. I admire their desire, but throwing money at this project is NOT what is needed
There are lots of educated African's, unfortunately none of them seem to be working on this project. I"m embarrassed that people on this page are endorsing this approach.
You folks may think this is funny... but I think joking at throwing money at a bunch of well meaning but uneducated people so they can kill themselves on a improperly conceived project is not the standard we should hold ourselves to.
