Poor sign. It was facing the wrong direction, so the low flying aircraft didn't realize it was being cautioned. It's just another case of a good idea with poor execution.

That must have been quite some duck if it bent the sign like that.

OK, @bear, what in the world is that plane? Maybe a special shuttle to carry parts of a big Airbuss plane from a plant in say Germany to another in say France?

My guess is that @bear's is a photoshop hack based on this image:

Seems that there are at least four or five of the Airbus Beluga in existance.

Totally unrelated, but the topic title instantly reminded me of this. Which is also awesome.

I saw this thread and immediately thought "goose!". But that is some sign.
