ZOOM

Zoom is a fast flying four letter word.

Sadly omitted in my bull story yesterday was any reference to another, highly topical anniversary. It marked the 65th anniversary of Chuck Yeager's flight in the Bell X-1... which made him the "fastest man alive" when he first broke the sound barrier.

How fitting that Felix Baumgartner completed his feat exactly 65 years later. General Yeager repeated his feat as well - in an F-15.
