Doing a viewer request "Atitude challenge"

I am Karthick Ashwath and I like your show very much. Could you please do a Viewer Request Altitude Challenge in one of your future episodes? The rules are:
  1. You may use any aeroplane/aircraft.
  2. You may not use rocket motors
  3. Each plane must be fitted with an altimeter which records the maximum altitude reached
  4. The plane which reaches the highest altitude wins!

This has been suggested a few times, and each time it was pointed out its a bad idea. Its not difficult to build a plane that can fly several miles high, that doesnt mean you should fly out of visual range and mingle with manned aviation. Its probably illegal too.
