Flying ~ A clever hoax

There has been a long held belief that the flying elephant fish is extinct. Of course that belief was recently tested when one was spotted flying over Loch Ness. Alas, it was simply a cleverly crafted hoax in the form of a balloon. That fact became quite obvious when the wings began to deflate. Knowing this, Nessie has no worries about any competition in the near future.
