Great list. After fixing the typo on #4, send it to all press outlets! Human power is doing big stuff!

Excellent choice Warren - I had no idea that these Birdman rallys could actually result in a sustained level flight. I thought most of them just glided down and hit the water. It seems most of the RedBull competitions are like this. I thought maybe 20,399 m was 20.399 meters since sometimes the comma is used instead of a decimal in some areas of the world. But it is true, he flew for 20 km and about two hours! Here's an article I found (note: maybe we could add references for all our stories) http://www.titech.ac.jp/english/news/2013/022014.html

Warren:
I would like to run your "10 best listing" in the about-to-be-published IHPVA newsletter with credit to you. Would you please drop me a pm for permission to do so?

Many thanks. It is quite a list and should be shown more often!
