Trotter WSA-1
 
 Trotter-WSA-01
 
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 I 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).
