Courage Quote of the Day

Paul MacCready

Engineer of the Century

The last flight I had in competition, in the 1956 International contest in France that I won, I got in circumstances where whether I survived or didn't just was a flip of the coin. Whether the turbulence went that way, or that way. As I was down in a valley from which there was no way to get out, with huge turbulence just buffing, like a little chip of wood in a frothing surf.
