Here's mine. Made from a 1940's vintage aircraft starter motor - of all things:
An incredibly heavy and powerful beastie (the bronze gypsy alone weighs +20kgs), now removed from the boat for the safety of all who sail on her...
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
