Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center: Monnett Moni stunt plane, hanging over the B-29 Enola Gay

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Monnett Moni:

Schoolteacher John Monnett developed the Moni (mo-nee) in the course of the early 1980s, and then coined the term ‘air recreation vehicle’ to describe this airplane. Monnett’s design almost captured all the merits that so numerous leisure pilots longed to discover in a single aircraft. The Moni looked fantastic just sitting on the ramp. It performed well, and a person reasonably handy with average shop tools could construct a single in their personal garage. The design and style had significantly going for it, but like so many homebuilt aircraft before and given that, a handful of essential engineering lapses in the design, plus difficulties with the engine and propeller, relegated the Moni to the category of homebuilt aircraft that promise a lot in design but fail to provide. Harold C. Weston generously donated his Moni to the National Air and Space Museum in April 1992. Weston constructed the airplane himself and flew it far more than 40 hours.
