Flightline

The story behind this case is just about the coolest ever. A colleague and good friend of mine is Alfred Poor. You all met him when he and I did a video interview called "Everything you need to know about buying an HDTV".

As it turns out, Alfred is a friend of Jeffrey Stephenson, the creator of all these case designs, and that brings us back to Flightline. Flightline was inspired by the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. The Wright Brothers Memorial was designed in 1928 by Alfred Easton Poor, my friend Alfred's grandfather.

I found out about this amazing collection of PC cases when Alfred told he was doing a back-story write-up on Flightline. The grandson of the designer writing about a case inspired by the architectural wonder created by the grandfather. I told you this was the coolest story ever!

To learn more about Flightline's construction, read the project worklog. For an even more in-depth discussion of building techniques, read the comprehensive construction log.
