A little different cockpit video
« on: February 22, 2012, 01:38:01 PM »
Just a curiosity.

After a visit in my home some weeks ago the biggest Norwegian newspaper “Aftenposten” last Sunday lunched an article in the paper and on their web-news with some text and a video.

The headline being “Flying around the world from his kitchen”.
To my surprise it was seen more then 50 000 times the first day or two…  ???

Was then on Tuesday told they had sold the video to the biggest newspaper in Sweden “Aftonbladet”  :o
Her with Swedish comments (same video) and (for me) an unknown numbers of viewer.

Point being,
based on the large numbers that has seen it and the vast number of mails and SMS I have received it must be a large amount of builders to be, or want to be out there.


Hope it all benefits our relative small community and raise the interest for our hobby.

PS! For the Norwegian written text, use Google to translate…

If i would have seen your cockpit, which is very nice, years ago, I would not have given up my garage for my husbands cockpit who is BlueSkyDriver.

Thank you for sharing

Congratulations dear Per

Indeed it is a nice feeling to be rewarded from a rare hobby like ours.

One year ago, when I was thinking of moving my project to the garage, my wife was straight forward to me... She said " if you move the cockpit to the garage me and the kids will rarely see you around, so please stay in your home office. At least we can see you around this way"... The truth is that I spend a lot of time in there, and it is nice to open the door, make a cofee, or a snack and enter again in our virtual world immidiately...

Congrats again...
