I remember watching this excellent documentary at 1 or 2am about strange aircraft. It included the solar powered plane that crossed the channel (I'm sure everyone remembers this). The same team have built and are fine tuning a second aircraft (the Helios/Centurion, with a 60m wingspan) that is designed to fly for long periods of time and potentially replace satellites. They are also researching craft with flapping wings and have built several rudimentary but promising prototypes. Fascinating stuff.

Patrick: It sounds like it's all your fault.
