Today’s roadside attraction isn’t a piece of … oh you know. The crapduster airplane in Carthage, Missouri is an airplane-shaped tourist attraction created in 1997 by artist Lowell Davis. The diminutive plane is made out of an antique manure spreader and biplane wings and has a crash test dummy for a pilot. The flying machine flies, propeller spinning in the wind, outside of a Missouri gas station and, appropriately, the Flyin W Convenience Store.

I checked out this Carthage MO attraction on a road trip around Missouri some years ago. Check out all of the photos below and then watch the video to see the propellor spin for yourself!
