OK, I know this aircraft never went into production, but I’d like to think that its design, with its graceful triple-tail configuration, influenced the design of my favorite aircraft of all time. (Yes, I am biased.*)

Also, please notice that Mrs Bugg is the actual pilot on this flight. Girl power!


Mrs Bugg occupies the left seat of the antenna-sporting Bugglas DC-4E, while Mr Bugg flies co-pilot.

The text reads: “Junebugg 7, 1938: The Bugglas DC-4E makes its first test flight.”
