Vespa Aviation History

Is it any wonder that Vespa came from aircraft . . .

Above, my son, Hudson Rogue poses in front of a Waterman's Aerobile airplane. For Father's Day we went to the Udvar-Hazy Center. Airplanes are another hobby of mine -- I build and fly RC. After the completion of the 1962 Lambretta TV175 S.3 (I would also like to find a nice S.1 or S.2 and restore it as well for my wife . . . and one for me too), I will build my own ultralight airplane and fly it.
Check out the front light and fender on this baby. Doesn't Vespa scream airplane design (we already know this from our Vespa history books).
Though after looking at this bird, I think I rather ride a Vespa than fly this guy.
