Video: Riding in a U-2

James May of Top Gear gets quite a ride:


Great video.

However, I don’t know that

“If everybody could´╗┐ do that once, it would completely change the face of global politics, religion, education, everything.”

It would be interesting to know if James May’s life is significantly different in a measurable way since his flight. Not to discount the idea that broadening ones horizons is important or that we’ve only got one planet or whatever, but unless he’s completely changed the way he lives I’m not sure why he should expect that everyone else would.

Regardless, it’s a great video. Murdoc is available for similar flights at any time.
