    I wonder if the docks location is a clue? Looking at the prop that's definitely designed for water. So I'm guessing it ain't a flying machine more like an underwater gizmo?

    It's a late 1950's prototype Austin Allegro.  Laughing

    It was made on a Friday and in consequence was delivered without a cowl over the radiator fan.

    Here's a vid  of the kite:



    Someone's thinking outside the box - especially the 10x power generation resulting from performing a figure of eight - who'd have thought it, eh?
