There is objectively nothing funnier in the history of human development than the man's early attempts at flight.
Use this thread to post images and discuss ridiculous early aircraft or perhaps also post unusual planes from later periods

I imagine the reason of it's failure is that every time you'd lose balance and fall, you'd end up sliced up into nice equal bits

>"ivan pls listen to me, just add more propellers it will still fly no i'm not drunk


This pisses me off because if they wheren't high they could have thought "gosh gee, lets add 4 props at each corner to balance it out, and so if the pilot has to abandon ship he wont get sliced to bits!" and then they could have invented the modern quad copter drone
