Massachusetts Institute of Technology / MIT Daedalus
 
In 1988, the purely human powered Daedalus, a light-weight aircraft built by a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, flew 71.5 miles from the Greek island of Crete to Santorini. The 69 lb craft, peadeled by a Greek Olympic cyclist, got caught in turbulence as it approached the beach at Santorini. It crashed in the sea a few yards from shore.
