  • The aircraft seen here, with the Serial Number NX28993, is an Eshelman Flying Flounder.

    It's odd that the commentator identifies the inventor at 00:32 as "Nelson Edwards", as the inventor was actually Cheston Lee Eshelman. (I can find no record of an aircraft inventor/designer called Nelson Edwards). You'll find Eshelman's details, (inc mention of NX28993) here...
