    This is by Peter Sripol, I'm sure many are familiar with his work. Sorry if this is a repost.

    The kid is connected with the EAA and had plenty of help so it wasn't exactly a solo effort (a smart move). He is a rather impressive young man and will do a lot more in the future.

    I think that there are over 150 real Raptors in the air. I recommend that we prepend a 'C' on the name of the other one.
