Unknown ornithopter.
here is the source,but it is not working.

http://www.impdb.org/index.php?title=Category:Unidentified_Aircraft&from=The+Green+Berets

(Edit: Judging the search results, the original source could be the DVD box "A Century of Flight: 100 Years of Aviation")
Maybe the name of the designer here,am I right ?.

With a very great probability, the name of the designer is "Soltau" and the name
of his design is "Sturmvogel" (albatross).

About the Oskar Dinort "Schwingenflugzeug" (post 31,#5 picture)


Oskar Dinort was before and during WW II a well known sailplanes and aircraft pilot .

In 1930 , he was already interested in ornithopters :

After the war , in 1957 , he built the ornithopter shown in picture 5 / post 31 : (here , fromJet&Prop Foto-Archiv Band 5)

I never saw before a picture of the finished bird (from "digit.wdr.de" then SUCHEN : "Flugzeughallen") :
