  • Description

    The latest man-powered aircraft was unveiled to the public in England on Saturday (October 23). The machine, the latest contender for a prize of GBP10,000 (sterling) for the first man-powered flight over a pre-determined course, was built by apprentices of the British Aircraft Corporation at its factory in Weybridge, Surrey. The pilot talks about the machine in this film -- and the aircraft lifts off the ground on a practice run for a later attempt at the prize money.
