Armaments like this one in Monmouth County could be found all along the coast of New Jersey during World War II, guarding against attacks by German u-boats.

This Day in Aviation History
October 19th, 1901
Alberto Santos-Dumont flies his Number 6 dirigible around the Eiffel Tower.

On 19 October 1901, after several more attempts, Santos-Dumont succeeded in making the return flight. Immediately after he reached Saint-Cloud, a controversy broke out regarding the precise timing of the flight: although he had reached his destination in under 30 minutes there had been a delay of over a minute before his mooring line was picked up. However a satisfactory compromise was reached, and Santos Dumont was eventually given the prize, which he announced would be given to the poor of Paris. An additional 125,000 francs along with a gold medal was voted to him by the government of his native Brazil....

This Day in Aviation History
October 17th, 1922
A Vought VE-7 Bluebird, piloted by Lt. Virgil Griffin, performs the inaugural takeoff from the USS Langley.

As the first American aircraft carrier, Langley was the scene of several seminal events in U. S. naval aviation. On 17 October 1922, Lt. Virgil C. Griffin piloted the first plane—a Vought VE-7—launched from her decks. Though this was not the first time an airplane had taken off from a ship, and though Langley was not the first ship with an installed flight deck, this one launching was of monumental importance to the modern U.S. Navy. The era of the aircraft carrier was born introducing into the navy what was to become the vanguard of its forces in the future. With Langley underway nine days later, Lieutenant Commander Godfrey de Courcelles Chevalier made the first landing in an Aeromarine 39B. On 18 November, Commander Whiting was the first aviator to be catapulted from a carrier's deck.....

First flight of the Rockwell-MBB X-31.

The Rockwell-Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm X-31 Enhanced Fighter Maneuverability program was designed to test fighter thrust vectoring technology. Thrust vectoring provides additional control authority in pitch and yaw, resulting in significantly more maneuverability than most conventional fighters. An advanced flight control system provides controlled flight at high angles of attack where conventional aircraft would stall or lose control....

Your grains of salt to take are that this is American sales again, but, um, this. You may happen to note that those are all ICE sedans on that list. Noone expects +Tesla to be able to dent Toyoto or Honda at this point, but they are clearly gunning for them. I'm sure Lutz has something to say about this. Tesla is very close to basically shutting most of the talking heads up on the subject. The insult still flug at Tesla this quarter will be that they did not maintain a 5k car pace... fine, but then explain what the issue is with all these other players. Q4 is more than likely to see another jump in volume. Perhaps not as pronounced, but we should see a solid #5 slot for Tesla for a while. Keep in mind that it's cracking the 10K mark and unlocking that $35K price point that is really required before they start to harm these top 4. Even at that price point, you have options here that are going to outsell the Model 3 as it's what folks can afford.
