I saw an interesting article in Consumerist the other day about an 8 year old boy who came up with an idea of how to find missing planes (like Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 which went missing and whose whereabouts are still unknown).

Ben’s idea was to attach neon orange balloons to the plane, weighed down by stones

Not bad for an 8 year old!  He sent a letter off to Delta to share his idea, and Delta sent him back a response with some Delta goodies
