Trotter WSA-1
In 1987 Larry G. Trotter built the WSA-1, claimed of being the "World's Smallest Airplane".
With FAA registration N3417 c/n 001, on the first flight attempt, at about rotation speed the propeller threw a blade, which resulted in some extremely violent vibration that did some damage to the front cowling and motor mount and was bad enough to shake the hands off the altimeter.
After repair and the metal prop replaced with a wooden one, Trotter never got around to trying again.
It was later donated to the Pearson Air Museum (WA, USA).
Engine: 16hp one-cyl 2-cycle shipboard utility engine
Seats: 1
