Didn't airplanes, on the contrary, evolve into hang gliders? It seems
clear that lungs evolved into fish swim-bladders, not vice versa: the

The alternative, that swim bladders are ancestral and lungs evolved four
separate times, is far more unpalatable.

Sorry, I can't swallow statements that put "MS" and "reliability"
