Aerobatic Aircraft
Did you know they make carbon planes that are similar to the purpose built approach of the ChampCar?
Walter's Extra aircraft (300L low wing aerobatic aircraft).   I approached the plane thing in the same way as race cars, lots of respect.

Funny, I think this is how we qualified that year.  Check out the wing on that second car. 

What kind of driver needs all that downforce?
