In the 1983 James Bond movie ‘Octopussy’, there is an opening shot of Roger Moore flying a small microplane to escape from a Latin American country but not before hiding his small plane inside a horse trailer that was earlier driven by a Range Rover. He flies this small plane continuously after dodging enemy and missile before realising he was short of furl. So he lands on a small road, folds her wings and moves to the nearest petrol pump. This small plane was an Acrostar (Bede BD-5J) model.
A very small single-seater plane designed by Jim Bede, the plane BD-5 was sold in kit form in the late 1960s. The second version known as BD-5J that weighed only 165 kg, could travel at a speed of 480 km/hr making it the world’s lightest single engine jet plane.
