LEGO Da Vinci Flying Machine

In the 15th century the great Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci dedicated himself to the study of aviation. He created many sketches of human powered flying machines, inspired by the flight of birds, that still capture our imagination today. Even though his work never realized a functional machine, it is a shining example of what the human mind can accomplish.
