Man builds Singapore Airlines A380 model -- and it flies!

For this Singapore Airlines-related gem, I thank Gary Leff, the brains behind the excellent "View from the Wing" blog on Boardingarea.com.  

It seems a man built a Singapore Airlines A380 model and made it fly. There is, amazingly enough, video evidence. 

Before I started covering aviation a couple of years ago, I was a sportswriter. I used to think that sports fans -- football fans in particular -- were passionate. But then I met aviation fanatics. These people just love airlines and airplanes. I might even say that Avgeeks, as they are called, are even more passionate about their love than football fans.
