John Davis spent eight years and 15,000 building a Boeing 747 flight simulator in a room in his house. And now the 47-year-old's hobby has turned into such a full-time occupation that he has jacked in his job as a graphic designer to run a full-time flight simulation business from his home in Coventry, UK. We interviewed John about his setup, including how much it costs to fly his sim:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Ron Carpenter and his fellow air traffic controllers were busy keeping more than 200 airplanes on course over seven states when their communication system crashed. Suddenly they couldn't talk to pilots or call for help.

"Somebody just pulled out a cell phone," Carpenter said. "Then everybody else says, `Hey, that's not a bad idea.'"

EMMITSBURG, Maryland (AP) -- The skies were empty at a charity air show after participants were escorted out of the area by F-16 fighter jets sent up because President Bush was in town.

F-16s like this one escorted the antique planes out of the no-fly zone Sunday.

Your airline could get a bill if you or any of your seatmates have to ask if there's a doctor on board. That subject is causing a stir overseas, where an Australian doctor billed Malaysian Airlines for "services rendered" after tending to multiple people in need of assistance on an August flight. The Malaysia Star writes that the doctor asked for an upgrade after assisting the passengers. Malaysia Air declined, though it did offer her an amenity kit with toiletries and pajamas. But now "Dr. Matilda Metledge has shot off a bill to MAS for services rendered," the Star writes, adding "her actions have now sparked a debate over whether doctors should be rewarded for providing services during flights."

World's smallest twin-engine airplane is a fascinating Cri-ation

We can't guarantee that this is the smallest airplane ever, but it is the smallest one we've seen that can hold a human. It can't hold just any human, though: from the looks of it anyone just a little bit taller or fatter than Nicolas Charmont, the French pilot pictured, simply wouldn't fit into its one seat. The plane is called the Cri Cri, and according to some sources, it was invented in the early 1970s. Charmont's innovation was to fit a model of the plane with jet engines so that it can reach speeds of 150 mph, instead of its normal cruising speed of 115 mph. Some might mock a plane that is both lighter and slower than most cars, but we'd argue that those people have no imagination. We're hoping that it's only a matter of time before the Cri Cri replaces the motorcycle.

Yes, it really can take off: check out the video after the jump.
