Kinetic Airways Grounded by Pothole, Baltimore City Prevents Recurrence

Bob Buerger brought back Kinetic Airways for the eighth time, and was hoping for his fifth ACE. However at the water entry, there two grand grim potholes at the intersection of asphalt and concrete. While he was trying to pull out of them, his drivetrain broke. This location is especially tragic, being adjacent to the spot where Kinetic Airways last year suffered a breakdown that also forced it to end its flight at the water exit.

Bumpo was also hung up on the same spot. However, a Kinetic volunteer contacted the Baltimore Department of Transportation and an hour later the race was halted for about 10 minutes for emergency pothole repair, so that no other sculpture would suffer Kinetic Airways’ fate.
