The plan is for about a 2 minute interview and then to fly Superman for about 2-3 minutes continuing the interview. I'll be flying off the Carlsbad cliffs where the viral video was shot. This is to happen at 6:50 local, sunrise, at the end of the show. There maybe an interview segment in the half hour before. Rain could screw things up. Did they show any video when they made the announcement?

Thank you. This really seems to be the ticket to get people into the hobby. They talked to me from NY for another 5 minutes and want to do it a couple more times.

I can't think of anybody that has represented our hobby to the general public in a better light than you.
