Flying machine!

Flying machine!

In honour of Orville and Wilbur, who achieved the first controlled powered flight 100 years ago today, I decided to build my own flying machine. With the materials I could find in the office, I did quite well, but the test flight was unpowered, and decidedly out of control, as you can see from the damage caused during a somewhat vertical landing!

other sizes: small medium original

I like the way you have lit this. Very clever.

What would a basic lighting kit consist of?

These have been around since we were at school at least: but I've just realised that's where they got the shape of the stealth fighter from. The Fourth Form!

Brilliant - and with similar results as the flight of the replica of the Wright flyer .)

As I won't be piloting (or building) your plane, you'll be fine!

Maybe not a great flying machine, but a lovely photo! As I'll be getting on a plane soon, I hope I have a better landing!
