This promotional set no. 2147 'Dragon Fly' was given to passengers of selected European flights in 1997—by British Airways, SAS, and possibly other carriers.

Clocking at 198 pieces and 2 minifigs, the 'Dragon Fly' was one of Lego's largest airline promos ever produced. A box had an exclusive red label on the front, "Specially made for Airline Companies," and it was even a modular build, with two separate instruction booklets.

Classic Town had an abundant aviation park, featuring many lightweight propeller airplanes and helicopters; multiple sets explicitly portrayed aerial acrobatics. But the tiny 'Dragon Fly' sport aircraft still stood out. It's constructed as a paraplane, basically, with a rear-mounted rotor pushing the pilot forwards, but has a fully-enclosed cockpit. The most striking feature is foldable wings, of course.

The ground crew includes two vehicles: a tiny four-wheel yellow buggy and a red pickup-truck (equipped with two holders for a hammer and a wrench). Each car can carry either a small trailer with two Octan cisterns or a towing dolly for an airplane.

According to Brickset and BrickLink, the 'Dragon Fly' was also available to North American customers via Shop-At-Home, but I personally wasn't able to find it in 96-98 catalogs.
