Also from the Smithsonian Collection


Earlier today I posted a botanical illustration from the Smithsonian Collection. Science!

And here we find an aircraft from the Smithsonian Collection.

It goes without saying that the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has some of the neatest collection of planes in the world… Designed and built by famed aircraft modeler Frank Ehling in the 1970s, they are the smallest flying models the Museum owns.

It’s a fly-powered aircraft, indeed. Science!

(h/t the straight dope)
