Saturday, at the Tianyi Salt Flats of Wuxi, China, a new world land speed was set.
With Wuxi China Expatdom Royal Navy Commander Admiral Lloyd Bridges at the helm, the WCERN Amphibious Aircraft Carrier Basil Rathbone achieved a land speed of 1500 km/h easily exceeding the previous land speed record of 1228 km/h set by the ThrustSSC Super Sonic Car in 1997.
The record was surprising since on water, the 150,00 ton WCERN Basil Rathbone’s top speed was 70 knots.
For Admiral Bridges, the setting of the land speed record was sweet vindication. "They thought I was nuts when I first proposed the building of amphibious aircraft carriers. The critics scoffed and said that amphibious aircraft carriers were too cumbersome to ever travel overland. They didn’t understand just how revolutionary was my super sonic nuclear motor technology and the quantum friction-reducing metal which I placed on the WCERN Basil Rathbone’s keel!"
After setting the land speed record, the crew of the WCERN Basil Rathbone could be seen Prisyadka dancing on the deck. Archduke Harry Moore, one of the first to back Admiral Bridges amphibious aircraft carrier idea, was permitted to join the crew as they danced on the deck. Admiral Bridges then made Archduke Moore an honorary WCERN Admiral and presented him with the keys to the ship.
