can it be, this a Strange design, power by a old man ?

just kidding ;)


background on man-powered aircraft

in 1959 the industrialist Henry Kremer offered
the Kremer Prizes of £50,000 for the first human-powered aeroplane
to fly a figure-of-eight course round two markers half-a-mile apart.

More on here

and the winner was in 1977
this aircraft the Gossamer Condor
