A Canadian engineering student achieved sustained flight in a human-powered ornithopter for the first time in August, and has just filed a claim for a world record, according to the University of Toronto.
The Boeing 747 was flying from London to Auckland, New Zealand. What the crew did not know was that a volcano called mount Galunggung in West Java province, Indonesia, had erupted and was spewing ash into its flight level.
We're flying too much, and it's changing the earth's climate. Aviation is the fastest growing cause of climate change. But instead of doing anything about it, the Government is planning more flights and larger airports.
