history meme | [2/3] inventions: da vinci’s flying machine (+ codex on the flight of birds)

Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex on the Flight of Birds examines the flight behaviour of birds and proposes designs for a ‘flying machine’, including designs that resemble hang gliders and helicopters. He constructed some of these machines and attempted to test them on a hill near Florence, however his efforts failed.
