WWII England Flying Jeep
The cheapest military plane in the world has now arrived in this country to be used as an observation post replacing balloons of the last war; and called the Flying Jeep by Americans. The two-seater aircraft has a 65 H.P. engine and can land and take off on ordinary roads. This handy little machine answers to the name of Piper Cub and costs about $550 to build. This is a Flying Jeep dropping gently to earth in the space of about 40 yards, landing so quietly that the roadside cattle are quite unconcerned in England, Dec. 27, 1942. (AP Photo)
