Salt water fish are huge. I mean look at Moby Dick for instance. I guess it is because they have so much room to grow in perhaps. Or maybe everything tastes better with a little salt. mRegardless the stories are there. Here is a list of the ones that didn't get away to achieve New Hampshire State records.

Flying is for the birds

Since the beginning of time, Man has wanted to take to the sky.

This is why I am getting involved with a new Aerial Imaging Company called Media Wing (www.MediaWing.com) It is devoted to marketing from the ground up for everything from real estate videos to golf club, accident scenes, sporting events and land and development aerial surveys.

 

Unlike icarus who simply came to close to the sun to keep airborn, I am securly planted on the ground with complete control of one of our many drones.

 

For fun here are some flights in history that didn't quite make it.
