#R2BC Friday’s #GoodNews – Taking Flight

Keeping it short today as I’m on the move around the UK. I was really buzzed by the WHO announcement yesterday that the West African Ebola outbreak was finally over, barring the risk of new flare ups, only to see the news of a new case in Sierra Leone. It’s not like they didn’t mention the risk, I’m just a little rocked by the irony.

Moving swiftly on to a more positive note, the story making me grin today is about Percy Pilcher’s Hawk. Having visited Dundee Airport on a few occasions, I was aware of this piece of history, of the Scotsman who narrowly missed beating the Wright brothers, and it’s great to see his plane restored to be displayed in the National Museum of Scotland.
