    I think that what Clipper had was a Sky car - the single person observation car.

    No, I think James is right. Clipper did post about it. I just can't remember if he made one.

    Wikipedia has this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siemens_torpedo_glider

    Here is another article http://warnepieces.blogspot.com/2011...one-style.html

    To find these all I did was carry out a Google search for "Siemens wire guided aerial torpedo".
