Re: James May goes for a little airplane ride!

I think that qualifies as 'awesome' - thank you for posting it. I actually felt quite emotional at how emotional JM was!

But how do you get a job where you are paid for doing things like that?

Re: James May goes for a little airplane ride!

In addition to his gig on Top Gear, May is kind of the resident Teacher/Boffin at BBC with several shows that are aimed a making technology approachable for the average person. He is famous for an episode where children put together an Airfix-type model of a Spitfire where all the parts are full size, producing an exact 1:1 replica of said plane!

I know of JM from his Top Gear gig, but he's also done a couple of series' on beer and wine where he drives around the UK, France and the US drinking beer and wine - and he gets paid for that, too!
