Haessler & Villinger Muffi


Helmut Haessler and Franz Villinger, engineers from the Junkers company, built a sailplane-like aircraft called the Muffi which had a foot-cranked pusher propeller. It flew 722 m (790 yards) after an elastic-aided launch and was awarded a consolation prize by Flug-sport magazine for the first man-powered flight of 1 km (0.6 mile) around two pylons set 400 m (437 yards) apart.
