Is there a job title anywhere on earth cooler than "rain maker" or "rain man"?

But i would be more impressed by one who doesn't need an airplane to produce rain.

I am afraid the fighter jets flying over this morning did nothing for rain :biggrin:

Cloud seeding was tried in Queensland in 2008.

From memory it wasn’t successful. Maybe the method has improved, maybe not.

All of this "praying" for rain is going to lead to one thing... floods. Then the Thai gov't will bring out their submarines and jettison huge sponges via the torpedo tubes.

This very year they had already done over 3300 flights. 

So far no floods, so small chance their work. 

 

Say 9900h of flying and 100 tons of airplane fuel doesnt pay back
