Flying RIBs = FIBs!!

By crikey
Just when I thought I'd seen it all, the crazy Italians come up with this - still, beats the commuter rush -perfect for the Guernsey-Jersey rush or that quick nip over to France.
Marina full? No problem!- zip a few miles inland and park it in someones lake!
For all you aspiring Buck Rogers wannabees, have a look at the link:

Looks bonkers - if this was April 1st I'd be dubious!

They have been around for a while now - there was one at Ribex at few years ago. The CAA in the UK have thrown the spanner in the wroks here though - got to get all sorts of licences etc.

I'm not surprised there are regulations surraounding these things - makes me wonder if that sausage shaped yellow 'UFO' seen off Alderney earlier in the year wasn't one of these things humming by!
I don't suppose many would believe that a pilot had just been passed by a RIB at 2000 ft (not unless it was a VERY big tide!).
Gotta laugh!
