The Flying Monster    (April Fool's Day - circa 1930)

The Dutch magazine Het Leven ran a photo showing an experimental aircraft known as the "Flying Monster" designed by a Polish airman, Raketzki. It was said to have two floors, with space for 20 people. The image was actually a photomontage. The background showed Amsterdam's Schiphol airport.
