Strange & unusual flying contraptions
 
1 Attachment(s)
Time for a little light humor and interesting photos to share for a smile.
Since the beginning of aviation, some real strange flying contraptions/designs saw the light of day.
Some were ingeneously clever and some, well, did not exactly fly as expected.
Ever came across a photo of a real strange or unusual flying contraption to show, or interesting story?
They can be RC/Real or cartoons. Let's hear/see it, especially if it is a RC flying thingamagic............

I took this photo in the London Museum of science - I guess this guy broke more than just a couple of ribs jumping off a cliff with this contraption......

im sure youve seen all of these, but here are some great ones, and some graphic media that I'd LOVE to turn into a scratchbuilt RC plane

Yes, they will be unique projects, but quite technically challenging - the kind of thing you can say "there is only one of those"...........That T tail "plane" thing is a thing that skims/flies just above the water (in ground affect). I don't know about the tubes on it's back but it is a Russian ground affect craft.
