|Howdy, was cruising older posts and ran across this one:
Anyway, was wondering where that plane is nowadays. Back in the early or mid 80's I met the pilot out on a training ride. Pardon the spelling, but I think his name was Kanelos P. Kanelopoulos. He was a member of the Greek Olympic cycling team. The greeks wanted Daedalus to be piloted by a greek. I got to ride with him for a little while while he was stationed at Edwards AFB for the project. Fun stuff. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. It is fixed, btw.

Kanelos was one of about 7 pilots of the Light Eagle. Five of them were in rotation for the Daedalus flight. Kanelos was an amazing engine ... the conditions that day were so good he thought he could have done double the distance, maybe have made the Greek mainland.
