I must have been realllllly bored recently and went back and read Moller's PR announcing the "year long celebration signifying 50-years of Vertical Takeoff and Landing Technology development." The 18-month long event (PR dated 29 Sept 2011) was to include the untethered demo flight.
But what I found most interesting was the first stop of the tour "starts with at (sic) City of Davis' Hattie Webber (sic) Memorial Museum and a speaking engagement." I emailed the Hattie Weber (Moller misspelled Weber) museum's Exhibit Coordinator Mary Lee Thomson and asked her if Paul Moller had made a appearance at the museum since the September 29 announcement. Her response: "not to my knowledge." Moller even renigged on his own "celebration!"
No, no, no. They said we can expect the Freedom offering "by year-end". 3 weeks away now, 3 weeks since the announcement. Halfway there. Moller is going to end the celebrations and 2012 with one last BIG fail... I'm sure going to lift a glass of the good stuff to them come year end.
