Ezekiel Airship

Do you think this critter ever could have flown?  A Baptist preacher name of Burrell Cannon bilked East Texans of their loose cash in exchange for stock certificates to build a flying contraption in Pittsburg, Texas.  He claimed it flew a few feet (when he wasn't around), and never got the chance to prove his claim as it blew off a railroad flatcar near Texarkana (aw, what a shame).  Ironically, folks in the area have forgotten their ire over the swindle and embraced this silly thing.
