Call me a kid, but the first two things that came into my head after seeing this was the Five God Dragon card from Yu-Gi-Oh, and the Quintessons from the "5 Faces of Darkness" 5-part series from Transformers.

I did an FAA search. All I saw was a brief mention of there use. There must be an FAA standard somewhere?

Yes. The ones you sometimes see at airports. They may have been more common in the past. They do the same thing as a wind T. What I'd like to know is if the FAA has standards for their dimensions? My search at FAA hasn't turned up anything concerning dimension's.
