“The aim is to prevent traffic accidents. The spray is being tested on fur at the moment, but it may be even more effective on the antlers, because they are seen from every side,” says Anne Ollila, chairwoman of the Reindeer Herders Association.

Their new plane will hit a top speed of 1,370 mph (Mach 1.8) while carrying up to 18 passengers.
