Title:
Aerial plain
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
The double loop connector shown in the drawing guides AERIAL PLANES and it is this double loop connector allows the AERIAL PLANE to float up or down the antennae without binding. There are currently antennae balls in the market already, (Jack in the Box) but the AERIAL PLANE is the first antennae that actualy floats with the air current. In fact on windy days people can observe AERIAL PLANES rising and falling on parked cars. AERIAL PLANES can give car owners a new toy that with a small arrestor clip on the antennae will prevent distraction to the driver.

Claims:
1. “What I claim as my invention is an unique toy designed for automobile and truck antennae that will provide passengers a diversion as the AERIAL PLANE rises and fall in stop and go traffic. Anyone who has ever stuck his hand out of the car window and let the wind raise and lower his hand will enjoy this device. The passenger can pick what kind of AERIAL PLANE they wish to watch, such as of airplanes, helicopters, space ships, cars, trucks, boats, ships, birds or fishes.

Description:
[0001] AERIAL PLANE is an airplane, helicopter, car, truck, boat, ship, bird, or fish shape device that will rotate, float up or down on an automobile antennae in response to wind direction and velocity.

STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT

[0002] Not Applicable

REFERENCE TO A MICROFICHE APPENDIX

[0003] Not Applicable

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0004] Class 446 AMUSEMENT DEVICES: TOYS

[0005] Subclass: 30

[0006] TETHERED-FIXED WING AIRCRAFT:

[0007] Device comprising an airplane or glider, or simulation thereof, which is constrained to move at or about a radius determined by the length of an elongated member connected at one end to the aircraft. (In this case an automobile antennae.)

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0008] Wind velocity and direction will rise and lower the AERIAL PLANE on an automobile antenna. This device can be in the shape of airplanes, helicopters, cars, trucks, boats, ships, birds or fishes. The AERIAL PLANE is attached to the antennae by a special connector that enables free movement up, down and around the automobile antennae.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0009] AERIAL PLANES will be made of mold injected plastic toys that will ride up and down on car antennae's directed by wind direction and speed. AERIAL PLANES can be in the shape of airplanes, helicopters, space ships, cars, trucks, boats, ships, birds or fishes. The determining factor in each shape and design will be the area and angle of its lifting surface.

[0010] In the case of airplanes, birds, and space ships the lifting area is obvious but in rectangular AERIAL PLANES the lifting area will be a flat surface. For example: In cars trucks, boats, and ships only the left and right sides of will be made. These sides of thin plastic will be molded to a flat angled surface.

[0011] With cylindrical shaped AERIAL PLANES, such as fishes or submarines, the lifting area will be based on the angle of the flat bottom of the toy.

[0012] The AERIAL PLANE is permanently attached to the antennae by a double loop connector that enables free movement up, down, and around the automobile antennae.
