Day-Martin 1909 monoplane
 
 Day-Martin-Mono
 
Glenn L Martin and Charles H Day built their first aircraft in 1909, in Long Beach, California. When they took the machine out for testing, the engine stopped while it was being taxied. The individual taxiing it decided to try to re-start the engine himself and was successful, but with no one in the cockpit the machine went off by itself and ran around the field until it hit something and was totally wrecked.
