Nihon University Stork

Hidemasa Kimura Stork


The opening up of the Kremer competition to the world brought forth Professor Hidemasa Kimura and students from the Nihon University in Tokyo and a series of man powered aircraft, one of which achieved a straight-line flight of 2095 m (2290 yards) in January 1977.

Professor Kimura's balsa wood and rice-paper Stork had by 1977 doubled John Potter's record in Japan and was in the running for the Kremer prize.
