Problem is that the prevailing winds would mean the balloon would be horizontal most of the time (and also at risk of escaping)
It's certainly going some, what's the range of the radio kit?
Electric is better too
Electric trains are also a lot more powerful then diesel. A bog standard electric loco puts out about 8-9000hp - a very large diesel can do about 4000hp at best (and weighs a lot more - up to twice as much) - but big thing with Electic trains, they don't carry their own batteries, instead having a contact wire or rail fed from the national grid.
Then again maybe that might be the way forward. have an electric grid suspended over the road and an earthed road surface. Pity someone already owns the patant on the Dodgem :)
Might be inherited from
Wasn't Spanair owned by SAS at the time? a few years ago when the Q400 was having lots of gear collapses, all the aircraft with failures (or signs of imminant failures) were owned and maintained by SAS, no other operator's aircraft were affected. IIRC it was eventually found that SAS were not maintaining them properly (though they still junked the Q400 fleet and tried to blame the manufacturer)
Not a new problem
I had to crack a game because there was a faulty batch that wouldn't pass CDLCKSPL (IIRC) - Retailer swapped 3 of them without complaint, then advised to crack. Complained to Publisher who basically said "Not our problem, you must be using a pirate copy"
I use IE6 on Win2K at work, but not through choice, I don't think our office PCs can run anything better (2001 Dells with 128mb of RAM) they struggle enough with simple tasks such as loading a new window (which the system spawns on a regular basis)
I'd noticed ads for Red Bull Mobile on the back of the Red Bull F1 cars
One on the M1
The spycar's wingman appears to have left the lens cap on
Rail is better then Road for info
Well techinally Nottingham is North of the Trent....
Anyway, at least the rail companies did get information up eventually. There is no information on the bus service outside London...
