A great example of the tortoise beating the hare.

Winston, a pidgeon, eleven months old, took one hour and eight mintes to fly with data on a card strapped to his leg 50 miles from the infomration technology company Unlimited IT’s offices near Pietermaritzburg to Durban. The company also trasnfered the date via a Telkom line.

Including the time to download the data on his leg, Winston’s total transfer time was two hours, six minutes, and 57 seven seconds. In this amount of time, four percent of the data sent on the Telkom line had been transferred.

Pigeon racing fans, like members of The Royal Pigeon Racing Association and other pigeon-loving groups, no doubt will be celebrating.
