Lippisch 1929 Glider

Alexander Lippisch in 1929 built a flapping wing glider on which the wing movement was operated by the pilot's legs in the manner of one of those rowing machine. Lippisch's aircraft was launched by a rubber bungee, and was therefore man-assisted rather than man-powered, but it did manage flights up to 275 m (300 yards).
