Better check your numbers, the lbs/min do not match the litres/min by a factor of 2.

After a blessedly safe landing near an oasis...
"How far did you say that Henson and Stringfellow flew that rubber-powered model in 1851, Mr. Dorfmann?"
"Six hundred meters, Mr. Towns."
"Is that meters or yards?"
"Meters, Mr. Towns, meters."
"If you've seen this film, you'll remember Dorfmann rattling off an amazing claim about, of all things, the early history of model airplanes. He says, "In 1851 Henson and Stringfellow built a rubber-powered model that flew 600 meters before encountering an obstruction." For years I thought this was an odd invention of the screenplay (I don't remember it being in the book) ... but it turns out to be entirely true."
"I suppose it's on this metaphorical level that I appreciate this story the most. The question raised here is about our potential as human beings to re-invent ourselves and our surroundings -- to gather the remnants of a hopeless situation and rebuild them into a potential for growth, for success, for happiness. If that isn't a worthwhile concept to ponder, I don't know what is."
