The Inflatable Plane

The Goodyear Inflatoplane was built in 1956 with the intention that it be used for reconnaissance or that it be dropped to downed pilots.  The plane could be unloaded and inflated in about five minute and had a flying range of about 390 miles.  Goodyear built twelve inflatoplanes before the inflatable airplane program was cancelled in 1973 by by the Air Force who could not find a valid use for the aircraft.
