War Of The Worlds


A friend forwarded the info about the Taylor decision against the FAA.
Looking at the FAA response, https://www.faa.gov/news/press_relea...m?newsId=21674
It's unlikely they'll accept it.


It all made me think of the classic intro by Richard Burton, to Jeff Wayne's 70's musical version of The War Of The Worlds:

"Noone would have believed, in the first years of the 21st century, that human affairs were being watched from the timeless halls of state. Noone could have dreamed, that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope would study drones that swarm and multiply like drops of water. Few men even considered the possibility of lights on their Gannets and yet, across the golfing race, minds immeasurably inferior to ours regarded this hobby with devious eyes.
And slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us"
