Sunday on Tv One had a very good item on Bruce Simpson of Aardvark fame, focusing on how he produced a cruise missile for under $5,000.
It also goes on to tell how the IRD bankrupted Bruce which killed a deal with a US firm to export the tecnology. Seems very short sighted of the IRD as they did not recover all their debt by bankrupting Bruce, and may have if the deal had gone through.
I met Bruce at his home a few years ago and he is a really nice guy. It is a real shame what happened to him.
The new TVNZ website (which isn’t bad) has a story online about Bruce and the missile deal.
