A friend convinced her class recently that they could fly. She moved them. Hot air can do this. Remember Fulton? Opportunities will abound this year.


The picture above shows a steamer in Waterford last September. Sorry. I didn’t catch the name, but I did catch that it was burning hardwood.
Combusted bunker fuel or diesel or coal is much less aromatic than maple, oak, or walnut. Then do we want to use all that hardwood to make hot air? How about dried driftwood?

Land craft that moved–didn’t fly–with hot air can be found here. Check out the Eclipse.
