James May at the edge of space in a U2 spy plane

The world's highest flying aeroplane takes Captain Slow for an emotional ride of a lifetime. I think he found God.

Many pilots do not need glasses in the beginning; However as they age glasses may be needed. The cost of replacing pilots when their eyes need glasses would be to great. The two greatest would be the cost of training new replacement pilots and the lost years of experience gained by the senior pilots that use and pass down that knowledge to the new pilots.

Fantastic-his tv show is always great but this was a golden moment. It's always good to see someone genuinely moved by something and James is a great guy for that. I'll even say.......smart Americans!
