On Wings of Gossamer

On Wings of Gossamer

The dream of flight began with makeshift wings bound to men’s arms which, like Icarus from Green mythology failed, often with deadly results.  This is the story of the pioneers who took to the air under their own power.

Zaschka’s Human-Power Aircraft, Berlin 1934.

 

SUMPAC was the first successful human powered aircraft.

 

The Gossamer Albatross II is seen here during a test flight at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Centre, Edwards, California.

A Little VC Tenderness

A Little VC Tenderness

The Vickers VC10 was an aircraft that was ahead of its time.  Sleek, fast and powerful it was designed to please an airline which then turned its back on it.  However, the VC10 won the hearts of many.

The RAF version of the VC10, the K3.

 

The VC10 flight deck including the ‘voice activated throttles’!

The Dead Stick

The Dead Stick

Despite being injured during a civil war and losing the sight of an eye, Carlos Dardano became a B737 Captain for TACA.  On descent into New Orleans, he strayed into a thunderstorm with disastrous consequences.  The fate of the aircraft its crew and passengers now depended on the flying skills of the Captain.
