Waco Cootie
 
 
Waco-Cootie-01
 

Bruckner and Junkin actually began designing aircraft in 1919 with a flawed plan for a floating airplane that never flew. Meyers, too, had already designed an aircraft with Weaver and the pair approached Bruckner and Junkin, asking them to join their construction efforts on a parasol wing, plywood fuselage, single-seat monoplane named the “Cootie.”
 
 
Costing $1,200, unfortunately, Weaver crash-landed the Cootie during its first flight attempt in 1920 and suffered extensive injuries in the crash. It was rebuilt.
