Sorrell Cool Crow 1 Parasol
Nicknamed "The Flying Bathtub," this little airplane was built by Otto "Red" Sorrell of Rochester, Washington. The strange machine was built to take pleasure flights close to an airfield. Many different motors have been used on the craft: from a chainsaw, a motorcycle, and finally, the 20-horsepower engine from a military target drone.
Former owner Ted Robinson says that the plane flies slow enough on landing that he could, "cruise by ten feet in the air and say 'Hi' to people on the ground. People are just agog to see such a funny thing flying."
