Looks like some stock in a sun screen company is required for crew membership.

Glass matters.

 

This is the Volvo P1800ES. We called it "Schneewittchensarg" (= "Snow White's coffin):

A different Messerschmitt, the Kabinenroller (= cabin scooter). We used to call it "Menschen in Aspik" (= "people in jelly"):

One thing I have to deny: The Consoldated Sea Wolf is not responsible for the global greenhouse effect. I mean to know, trials for growing tomatoes on long-range flights (to save the non-steering crew members from boredom) in it were discontinued, for unknown reasons.

Don't worry, everything's allright in the BMW Isetta.

Some plants could even get a special treatment by being smoothly rotated inflight when placed in the front .

Everything's better than all right inside the Isetta as far as I'm concerned.

WOW! I did not even consider the carousel effect. Nice eye RT.

Sarcophagus is the more proper translation!
I think the Swedes themselves might have originated that name as the accurate translation is used in Sweden too!
For about a decade have Volvo produced a modern derivation of the sarcophagus: The now discontinued and by Me much admired C30:

The Messerschmitt cockpit is side-hinged causing troubles for new owners who drove forwards into their garage and found themselves caught in the cockpit hitting the ceiling and realising the vehicle couldn't drive out again as it hadn't any reverse gear :-o
However Messerschmitt was quite inventive and as the engine was a two-stroker it was equipped with a second set of ignition breakers making it possible to start the engine in reverse rotation, but many had to learn about this trick the hard way ;-)

Growing weed in international airspace? How inventive ;-)

I have used that as an avatar for many years to piss off a Hungarian lawyer who thinks the Bf109 is the ultimate fighter airplane of WW2. I should add that he thinks the Spitfire is the worst fighter airplane of WW2.
