Err, sorry about that, been at the airport assembling my aeroplane....

the Winner is Spacer with:
Real Planes of Genius:
Dubbed the Flying Featherduster, backyard engineers took a 'many short rotors' approach to creating a PBY-derived gyroplane.
Thankfully, it never flew.

lots of other good entries though.
In reality the tree is not growing out of the Cat, just a bit of creative framing. the Aircraft is at the Classic Flyers Museum, Tauranga New Zealand and is slowly being restored for static display.

over to you Spacer......
If it was supposed to be easy, everyone would be doing it!

How come aircraft always crash inside areas marked with Hazard tape?

Despite being firmly on the ground, the EVA engineers diligently set about reproducing the autopilot's 200ft per minute descent fault.
