Not to be served but to serve

Maverick Flying Car
Steve Saint (Son of Nate Saint) of I-TEC drove the road-legal flying car from Florida to Oshkosh, probably the largest Air-show in the world to exhibit its capabilities. Since then the FAA has also issued the Maverick a S-LSA aircraft airworthiness certificate. I-TEC hopes to be in production by EAA Oshkosh 2011. As Steve shares in the short video, the Maverick Flying Car was developed to primarily serve humanitarian and mission applications. For updates on the development of the Maverick, visit here.

Some asked if we could help supply traditional objects of worship, others spoke of how the inmates... [Read more]
Who was this guy, often comically depicted in commercials and advertisements wearing a green hat, smoking a long-stemmed pipe and shown with a four leafed clover next to a pot of gold? The holiday honoring him, which is celebrated again in a few days with parades of people dressed and even a river died in green.
