White Dwarf will try to fly Oct. 28 late morning  Reed Gleason

Weird forecast, too much south wind early morning, lighter winds later and
no instability, that pesky convection shouldn't be a problem. We expect to
arrive at Madras Airport around 11:00, fly a while after that, then go home.
The WD propeller has always needed a fairing, according to Klaus Savier and
Eric Raymond, both low-drag mavens. Klaus sent me a pusher-style fairing
that he had used on his Varieze to set a couple of world records. I don't
think I really need a 240 MPH fairing on the WD, but it's lighter than
anything I could make anyway.

Most evil in the world is done by good people who believe other good people
are evil.
