Golden Retriever flies Lindbergh plane into the Arc de Triomphe (not really…)

My search today came up with a funny, yet slightly disturbing video.  On May 21, in 1927 Charles Lindbergh landed in Paris marking the first solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean. (real story here)  The Onion reports that before this solo flight could be completed, several test flights occurred with dogs as pilots.  Many dogs were lost. including german shepherds and dachsunds.  One dog, a golden retriever named Oscar, made it 3,625 miles…well, watch the video..you’ll see.  The part on Lindbergh doesnt start until about 35 seconds in…(sorry I can’t seem to embed the video here..)
