Perched in his flying canoe, our intrepid aviator is checking something through his telescope. However the goose seems less sure. He seems to be checking if the telescope is working properly!
Not just a canoe, this craft also has wings!
Suspended from a long spring, as the model gently drifts in every passing breeze, the wings gently flap up and down. Suspended below the biplane is a wicker basket. What could it contain? Supplies for the journey? Maybe the goose keeps their eggs there....

Tim's Amazing Vintage Retro Steampunk Flying Machines
These flying machines were made in the Philippines about 20 years ago. Made of metal, with ceramic hand painted figures, there is no plastic involved. Hand made by skilled craftsmen, each one will be slightly different. This is a decorative item, and is fairly fragile. It is not a toy, and should not be handled by children.
We are very pleased to have been able to acquire this consignment of flying machines. Quantities of each item are limited, and once sold, there will be no more.
