I am not sure, but...

Talking about human ingenuity, these guys have built a replica B-52 that's bigger than a car and actually flies. I'm not sure, but one would think this would be skirting the edge of legality. I know our military has the Predator, and other unmanned craft, but when civies are building these things, with turbine engines, etc., are we close to having private air forces? The replica does seem to have bomb-bay doors. Thank goodness neither the Hatfields nor the McCoys had something like this.

This guy is close to getting his V-22 Osprey (built from scratch) to fly - perhaps he will beat Bell Helicopter to the punch?
