I was just wondering, as I stare out at yet another rainy autumn day in Holland:
Has anyone worked out a way to fly in the rain? I know it's generally not "allowed", but we all know that lightning is pretty rare this time of year. Why not, really? Certainly if they can swim in the ocean, they can fly in a fresh rain. And if I can bike comforably for 30min to work in raingear, why can't I fly for 2 hours in rain gear? With the wind at my back, it would be quite comfortable.
I guess I will need new lines? Has anyone perfected this? Has anyone tried fishing line, or other high tech materials to produce water-proof lines?
Just a bit of day-dreaming/pseudothinking.
