The National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian played one of the greatest April Fools Day jokes ever. They produced a behind-the-scenes video that features the latest addition to their collection: Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. This is brilliant the most cheapest display cases ever!
The video includes them talking about the jet and even shows an employee on a lift cleaning it. These guys take things very seriously, even if it’s a April Fools joke.
Here’s an excerpt from the blog post on their website:
The Museum of Flight had acquired the plane with help from Lieutenant Diana Prince in April 2013. Since then, our curator Bob van der Linden wanted very much to display the plane at the Museum in Washington, DC. …
The jet is well ahead of its time. It used stealth technologies in the 1950s long before the Lockheed YF-12A and the SR-71 Blackbird were introduced. The engines on this plane allowed Wonder Woman to travel through space. Keep in mind that NASA’s North American X-15 took the United States to the edge of space in the 1960s, but it was Amazonian technology that had Wonder Woman traveling into deep space in the 1950s.
Other features on this jet include shape shifting, telepathic abilities, and multi-dimensional transport. Although the jet was invisible the passengers were not, and they often appeared to float on the clouds. It should be mentioned that even though Wonder Woman can fly under her own powers, the plane has come in handy when needed to transport Etta Candy and the Holliday Girls as well as Steve Trevor and others.
