This forgotten war saw the first aerial reconnaissance and bombing missions.

A rare gyrocopter project.  The remains of a McCulloch J2 are being sold on Ebay:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/J2-McCulloch-Gyro-Copter-project-/232116523...

Less than 100 of these gyrocopters were sold.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCulloch_J-2  They have the advantage of using many conventional (and still available) aircraft parts.
