79 MacCready (Gossamer Albatross) _A.JPG

79 MacCready (Gossamer Albatross)
This is a human-powered airplane, the first to ever fly across the English Channel. The only power came from the man inside turning the bicycle geared propeller.
It was made by the same team that had made and flown the Gossamer Condor, a similar looking airplane that was the first ever to fly by human power alone.
