I can only guess that this actually happened.
Happy Hump Day. Extra Internet points to anybody who can ID either the plane or the car (or both) without cheating. Five copies of the airplane were built, but only two of the cars were ever made.

Welcome to This Date in Aviation History, getting of you caught up on milestones, important historical events and people in aviation from June 16 through June 19.
On October 28, 2016, American Airlines flight 383, a Boeing 767-323 (N345AN) was departing Chicago’s O’Hare Airport for Miami when it suffered an uncontained failure of the number two General Electric CF6 engine. The stage 2 compressor disk broke in half while at takeoff power, and one piece of the disk traveled…
The driveway next door to my son’s clarinet teacher. Kind of hard to see, but those are race track stickers on the bumper.
I tried to log onto my toll tag account to update my credit card information. I was greeted with this message. So I call, and the first thing the agent tells me is that I can use the internet for most transactions. No, I said, I can’t. So she asks me if I’m using Internet Explorer. That might help, she suggests. No,…

Today’s Astronomy Picture of the Day. Description after the jump.
This is the flight deck of the USS Constellation (CVA-64) as the carrier made its way to Vietnam in 1967. Since the arrival of the multirole fighter, you no longer see a deck with such a wide variety of aircraft. From the bottom up, we’ve got a North American A-5 Vigilante, a Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, a Douglas RA-3B…
1976 Cutlass, $2,000. I have no idea how the inside looks. But it looks decent from across the street.
On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed the Flag Resolution which stated: “Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
While driving through Colorado, we happened across what I can only figure is a vast VW diesel graveyard next to the Pike’s Peak Int’l Raceway. Many still had the window sticker affixed. What’s going to happen to these? The crusher? Such a waste....
Back from vacation after 10 days and 3,569 miles of driving through seven states, not including Texas. Saw 49/51 US license plates (screw you, Delaware and DC) plus BC, Alberta, Ontario and PEI. Good times, but it’s nice to be home again.
While driving through eastern Wyoming, I saw a number of plain, blue vehicle with tinted windows. They were clearly some sort of government vehicles, complete with red/blue lights, but what? I saw another one in Amarillo this morning. I found this video on YouTube which shows almost exactly what I saw. One YT…
I’m a wagon man at heart, so I’ll take the woodie.
This was the view out the front window as we turned off I-25 at Raton in far northeast New Mexico and turned for the Texas panhandle. Fortunately, we only drove through the outer bands of this storm, and only got gusty winds and pea-sized hail.

Sundance, WY. This looked like a DD. Impressive condition, at least from across the parking lot.
