Winslow 1904 bicycle glider

On 30 July 1904 steamship officer Stewart Winslow (1871-1961) tried to fly this self-built machine, in preparation for an effort to fly across Snake River at Lewiston, Idaho. According to reports the wing-equipped bicycle lifted off several times during a test run, before the front wheel failed because of a puncture. Winslow planned to build a wooden runway for the next try, but it never happened.
