The Ukranian small plane manufacturer Aeroprakt Company modified their original model A-22 into an interesting wooden plane. The wooden look is only a custom paint job, but it still looks clean.

Implications - The aircraft has a steampunk look for those who are into the whole sci-fi counterculture thing. Outside of its pseudo-futuristic look, the A22 plane has all the layouts of a classic plane you'd expect to see back in the good old days. It probably packs a bit of speed as well, considering how the design goal was to make it lightweight. The modified A22 Steampunk Plane is a pretty cool aircraft to look at, even for those who aren't too into aviation.
