It's not French, it's the Air Car.

Yes, LM is correct. the Spencer S-12 Air Car. It evolved into the Republic Seabee. A refined Spencer Air Car was available again the late 1960s and early 1970s.

LM has control.

You buggah!

I had that stored in my ready to go folder for another site, so cover has been broken.

It's the jet-powered project version of the Bandeirante.
