    Look, in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane... no, it's a flying lawn mower

    PORT ST. LUCIE High up in the air near the future Torino Regional Park, a pair of jet aircraft streaked through the sky, followed several minutes later by a half-dozen military planes, their engines whining like banshees.
    These took a back seat, however, to the flying lawn mower. Well, a model plane in the shape of a lawn mower.

    How cool is that, dont know much about flying lawnmowers but I do know a little about runaway mowers, hubby was mowing the lawn and when the catcher was full he detached it to empty in the bin while he was doing this as we live on a hill the mower took of down the hill, he went back to put the catcher on and the mower was half way down the street heading for the intersection, what a funny sight it was seeing hubby chase the mower, he got to it before it got to the intersection Phew.

    Yes Dingo he was but what was even funnier was we had friends that lived in a unit directly opposite the intersection and they were sitting on their balcony having a few drinks and saw it all happen and boy did it crack them up, they said they had never seen anything so funny. If we had entered it on the Funniest Home Video show we would have won.
