Smallest monoplane in the world

The Baby Bird. The Baby Bird was 11 ft (3.4 m) in length, a wingspan of 6.25 ft (1.9 m) and weighed only 250 lb (115 kg) empty. Its 55-hp piston engine gave the Baby Bird a maximum speed of 110 mph (175 km/h) when it first flew at Camarillo, California, on 4 August 1984. Pilot Harold Nemer completed 35 flights aboard the Baby Bird by the time it was retired in 1989.

imagine the look on the atc's face as he gets his first visual of you on final at your local airfield. or picture the scene of you in a que waiting for takeoff with some other g/a. on halloween you could paint your face like charlie mcarthy, and have a buddy with a fake radio controller pretend that you are an r/c model. you'd really freak people when you stepped out of the plane.

I don't even think you would need a runway... just land in a parking lot and take up a compact car spot.
