Released in 1972 by Kenner, Major Roscoe Hawke’s Amazing Flying Machines allowed children to fly the friendly skies indoors.
The company offered two models in four different colour combinations. The Room Zoomer had a 12-inch wingspan and performed in-air stunts, such as loops, rolls, and flying upside down. The Super Cruiser glided in small circles on its 16-inch wingspan. The wings, rudder, and stabilizer could be adjusted to create different flight patterns.
Both designs used a mix of Styrofoam and plastic pieces and were powered by rubber “power bands.” Kenner included a Power Injector rapid winder for “easy fast winding”. Sliding the winder back and forth 12 times fully wound the bands and readied the plane for flight.
