Aviation Milestone: First Man-Powered Flight

Aviation enthusiasts, today is the 40th anniversary of the first man-powered flight. On August 23, 1977, in Schafter, California, "Bryan Allen pedaled the 70-pound Gossamer Condor for a mile at 'minimal altitude of two pylons' in a flight certified by the Royal Aeronautical Society of Britain." *

If you want to know more about aviation topics, Beauregard Parish Library can point you in the right direction. One of the best places to start is our Access Video on Demand collection. [Librarian note: You'll have to use your library card number if viewing from home.] A general search for "aviation" brings up over 1500 video segments.

Here is one video from the collection you might enjoy:
