The Slapped-Together Aircraft Advertising Rum Above San Francisco

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Would you look at this airplane seen flying above San Francisco? It’s life-size, not a model. Can you see the Volkswagen Beetle-esque four cylinder boxer motor hanging off the front of it? Appears to be home-made.

It’s amazing that this little thing could tow a billboard (for refreshing Malibu Rum in this case) but that’s what it was doing. No N-Number visible – perhaps this aircraft is too small a plane to need to register with the pesky F.A.A.

Maybe you can’t advertise hard liquor on billboards near public schools anymore, but you can always fly low and slow right above the schools.
