World's First Pedal-Powered Ornithopter Flies in Canada

It's a goal that has eluded engineers since Leonardo da Vinci's days - a plane that flies by flapping its wings - an ornithopter.  Until now that is.   The pedal powered craft, flown by a University of Toronto PhD student, has proven it can be done.   It's quite amazing to watch.
