Flying to work.
In an aircraft you have built yourself.

Awesome old clip, wonderful to see! Flash forward to the present day & my submission for the 'best and/or cheapest' do it yourself kit plane for the whole family to travel in is the 'Murphy Moose'. And for a minimum of only US$100,000 [2011 prices] I will accept all donations, lol. :mrgreen:

P.S. I just love the name of the place where the company is based...Chilliwack! :D
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.
