Hello

This morning, my 14 years old daughter call me from France to annonce me she receipt a ''big'' letter from Mike Melvill. She start his collection and it's his 2nd success after John Glenn (signed his book for her).
Mike Melvill sent her a signed photo of SpaceShipOne during Space flight, and the 2 photos taken by my daughter in June at Mojave Airport (we were here). And a little note indicating her he will send him later signed photo of him and others pilots team. She wrote him August 2th and receipt today.

I am terribly ''jealous'' because I'm still waiting my request from him to my US adress.

A great man...

Olivier

I just sent my stuff to Scaled Composites. I did a collage of images I downloaded from the Scaled Composites site, making it graphically pleasing as well as adding floating M&Ms. I sent a copy for Mike to have along with the one I wanted signed and he returned the signed copy in one week.

Hi,
I can only give a big praise to Mike Melvill. I sent four photos, and he signed them all, adding altitude, date of flight and a personal inscription and best of all, he had his three comrades sign the group picture as well. It took three weeks only to receive all back here in Germany. Really a nice guy!

I just got my 2 covers back this week from Mike Melvill and his fellow pilots.

What a neat project and adventure. A challenge that will be met.

My best wishes to Scaled Composites.
