Speaking of low cost rides, years ago a rather large green beetle landed on the windscreen in front of
me just as the tower gave us takeoff clearance. As the speed built, he hunkered down against the
wind. Somewhere around 100 kts first one leg, and then another came unstuck, and he blew off. I
always hoped that he missed the engine. It was an MD-80, so the air flow might have taken him to it.
But he had determination.
