Steam Powered Aircraft!
Apparently real and a success, in its day at least. The most interesting aspect of this retro airplane is that it was QUIET, and at a time when aircraft weren't.

One would think that a couple of these would have been brought into use as stealth spy-planes during WW2, at least prior to the development of RADAR, but from all my searches, it seems the only wartime use of steam related to aircraft regarded steam powered catapults to launch aircraft from carriers.
