I saw the ad' for that on the BBC website this morning, and just this moment seen some 'footage' of them on BBC Breakfast.

Lovely bit of CGI - flocks of peinguins flying around - it looks stunning.

Obviously a gag, but makes you think what else can be done with this technology.

On a mildly related aside, I thought pretty much the same thing on 9/11 when I saw the original footage of the Twin Towers on fire. If you've ever seen the film 'Armageddon', there are eeriely similar shots in that film after bits of the asteroid hit the self same towers.

To day is that Day that comes but once annually, as already mentioned.
Having said that I have seen 'flying' Penguins, genuinally in the flesh and feather so to speak, Whilst in the Antarctic peninsula in 2005.
Just like 'flying fish' and Dolphins and Porpoise
they breach and loop when at speed - usually in getting away from a predator.

I doubt they flock to the Amazonian rainforests though when they get hungry!!

Quite seriously what was not shown on the clip was the fact that they developed this ability in order to be able to feed off the spagetti trees

The Today programme this morning reported that migrating birds were inclined to stay so RSPB were talking to BA about flying finches to Sweden via T5 ...

Maybe they should fly the stork that gave the baby to that man, back to the Scandinavian area too.
