The Degen Ornithopter.

by Daniel Russ on February 23, 2014





This is a story about a guy who made a claim that he flew in a machine that he built. and it probably did not happen at all. Sir George Cayley published a tome called On Aerial Navigation in 1909. In it he recalls this ornithopter/balloon hybrid that Australian Jacob Degen flew. Degen claimed that he could fly this using motions natural to ones body.
