Not to worry Doc. Stephen was writing in a humorous vein. The
'flights' he refers to are the ones that a static model takes when just
one too many things have gone wrong. The landing is indeed the
problem! I've never 'flown' one but I once smashed a B 26 with a
recalcitrant metal finish by grabbing it by the fuselage and smacking
it across the edge of my work bench.
