This is just a rough draft. It is a language project. The rough draft is due tomorrow. :

Steve Fossett completed his non-stop, solo flight around the world on March 4, 2005. He flew the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer that was sponsered by Virgin Atlantic. Steve Fossett was 60 years old. It took him four days or 67 hours at an altitiued of 46,000 feet and an average speed of 287 mph. While in flight Steve was in constant contact with ATC, or air traffic control. His flight started and ended in Salina Kansas. While over Japan he realized that he was missing 2,600 punds of fuel. He called this, "A huge setback" Because of that flaw, he almost was forced to land in Hawaii, but he causght an unexpected 60 knot tailwind which carred him back to Salina Kansas. After he landed he admitted that the most difficult part of the flight was the takoff. "So many things could have gone wrong." he told reporters. It was a dangerous flight, with little sleep and diet milkshakes.

Correct me if I have any information wrong.

OK.

This is only the rough draft. She is going through it with us step by step. So it can't be perfect.

Guest Ed Guest

Yeah, give the poor woman a break and correct your spelling before you turn it in.

Better run that rough draft through a spell checker.

Why?

I just wanted to make sure the information was all correct. I am only aloud to do the rough draft. I am only in 6th grade so my teacher (Mrs. Woolley) is walking us through it step by step. Monday we are going to "Revise" it. Tuesday, proofread it. and on Wednesday, final copy.

Oh dude, you missed my point. I was commenting on the fact that the minute one person makes a comment on your spelling, everyone else hops on the "critisize-the-member" bandwagon

Pro Member Chief Captain
Matthew Shope (mypilot) Chief Captain

Oh yeah. I don't mind. I will run it through MS word when on Tuesday.

Good for you. Enjoy it while you can. Before you know it, you'll be a grouchy 55 year old man. 😂

Spelling and grammar are pet peeves of mine. I work with college graduates (many with advanced degrees) who can't spell or put together a complete sentence. You ask for corrections of the information; an incorrectly spelled word is incorrect information, right?

And you might consider reworking the last sentence: are you saying diet milkshakes are dangerous? Maybe the information about what Fossett consumed could go in a different sentence.

Let us know when you want help with the punctuation! 😉

Your mind goes thru lots of words in a 10 second span. The trick is to slow your mind down-to a crawl. Then you can write things like:
'
Mary had a little lamb'
'Her fleese was white as snow..'
(Was Mary's fleese white, or the lamb's?)
'
When she grew older, she grew bolder'
"So she slew the 'u', and ate her ...'
(Now her alphabet is missing a 'u'?) (heehee)

OK guys and probably girls. I think the guy gets the point.

what a strange posting - seems to me that loads of people were trying to help, not get at the kid for his spelling.

i think you should be grateful for the help, and maybe stick a post on thanking people, rather than get worked up that people were correcting the spelling.
