wooden toy plane

Found this little wooden plane at a garage sale today for only $2 dollars!

Antique Wooden Toy Plane

The man who sold it to me said that it is a model Bonanza plane but is also called the 'doctor killer' - because at the time of original production only doctors could afford them...and many times when flying them they would spin out of control and crash. Found this to be true when I looked it up on Wikipedia as well.

I have it sitting on a side table in the porch.

Yup. V-Tailed Doctor Killers, as my father always called 'em.
