The Fullness of Time is progressive metal band Redemption's second album overall, but the first to feature a band lineup, as opposed to a project lineup as found on the 2003 eponymous debut and featuring members of Prymary Chris Quirarte and James Sherwood. The vocals were provided by Fates Warning vocalist Ray Alder, who previously produced the first album and provided vocals for one song. This is the only album with James Sherwood on the bass.

Offers an account of the longest human-powered flight in the history of aviation, in which Kanellos Kanellopoulos replicated Daedalus's mythical seventy-mile journey from Crete to the Greek island of Santorini
Reviews:
  • Adrietius
I can't remember any details about the order, as it's been a while.

I've read it two or three times. As I recall, it was heavier on story than it was on the technical side, so if you're looking for a lot of info on how to make your own, you might want to read something else too. You may get some insights on the organizational side, and you'll probably need an organization to make and fly one. Plus of course it's a compelling story and good entertainment.

I've met some of the people involved in this, and I seem to recall that they seemed recognizable in the book.

This book is a favorite of mine. I recommend it to any person with any interest in engineering or techincal problem solving (also pick up Pepper White's "The Idea Factory" & Yeager and Rutan's "Voyager".) Engineering students (especially those involved in team projects) should read this book. Learning by doing...and having a passion for your work...those are 2 of the important themes in my view. I've meet some characters similar to these guys...and the stereotypes fit.
It's a fun read...and perhaps the best thing you can take away from it is seeing what can happen when you follow your own path and resist being a "tool".

Book fills in all the back story of a well known impressive project. The principles all are unique and each contribute to the success of the project.
