I'm sure pilots will still find a way to overrun.

AVIATION AND NASCAR ARE GETTING TOGETHER!

It's just like Reeses Penut Butter Cups! Except instead of a yummy chocolate & peanut butter combo, you get something that's fucking stupid.

I seem to recall that Captain Ace McCool of Downeast International Airlines had a screw ball idea that made more sense. He proposed a floating airport made of tethered barges that could be anchored in the St. Laurence River and allowed to swing into the wind to eliminate the rascally crosswind that interfered with his landing in 50 and 1/8. Did not have to use the "Have Landed" overhead light.

The average pilot, despite the somewhat swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Hey, if they could motorize it and make it spin too, you could take off without moving forward at all! :P
