Caption: Flying machine. Historical artwork of a flying machine designed and drawn by the Italian inventor Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). Its four wings were to be driven by the muscular power of the pilot. Leonardo devoted many years of research into studying flight and designing potential aircraft. His notes are in the mirror hand-writing which he used to keep his work secret. This is from Manuscript B in the Institut de France.
