Fly

Fly

Machines in Motion is a special exhibit of Leonardo da Vinci’s revolutionary 15th century drawings and working machine replicas displayed at Appleton’s Castle Museum.  Although he never succeeded in creating an actual flying machine, he did design a machine based on the wings of bats and birds of prey which the pilot would work with ropes and pulleys.

  4. I think I saw and photographed the same display when it toured Brisbane some years back and I got that shot of the young boy discovering his improvements on the Archimedes’ screw. Wonderful Exhibit and great collage to applaud it.
