It’s no mistake that the plane featured on this 1926 cover looks like a white-winged seagull as it soars along a hilly green coast. According to Popular Science’s report, the flier was designed based on taxidermied gulls of various species—a move its Flushing, NY-based inventor hoped would make for a more efficient flier. But while the cover shows this avian-esque contraption in elegant flight among a flock of feathered friends, the article notes that in real life, the proposed plane was unfinished and had yet to take off.
