A few years ago there were a pair of them flying the UK air show scenes, one used to land on top of a moving wagon if I remember correctly, very aerobatic, now from memory its 2 x 500CC motor bike motors or was it 2 x 250CC Anyway I think they look great fun

Default Turbine version

The Cri-Cri is the worlds smallest twin engine airplane. It weighs just 170 kilos and can fly at a hefty 150mph which isnít bad at all. The thrust is generated from 2 AMT Olympus Turbines. If one of the turbines is used it can still get up to 100mph. I cant say it looks like the safest plane on the planet, but that doesnít matter to the French pilot Nicolas Charmont pictured.

What? No helmet? Watch him adjust that harness. Looks like he's got something in the throat.

I kept expecting it to land and someone walk over and pick it up! I love the 3 foot tuned pipes!
