Derby #119: Flight

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

If it moves through the air, or at least wants to move through the air, it's fair game for this week's Derby. Airplanes, balloons, birds, missiles, bats, hang gliders, rockets, Wallendas: gas 'em up, get 'em on the runway, and take off into the sunset of Derby stardom. (The Rejecterator might even be softening his position on flying penguins, but don't tell him we said so.)

Yes, as many of you have pointed out, we are aware that we used "Air" as the theme for Derby #94, almost six months ago. We're hoping you'll take this Derby's different emphasis as a cue to take your designs in a different direction than those covered before.
