George Bennie (1892-1957) was a pioneering inventor who carried out trials of a suspended monorail sail plane in 1930. The project, funded by Bennie, was to set up a monorail at Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, as an experiment but it was criticised by engineers and consequently failed because it was poorly planned and carelesly conceived. It was dismantled in 1956. Bennie was declared bankrupt, dying penniles in 1957.
