A complete feature written for the BBC's popular science
BBC Focus. The core of the piece is the University of Toronto's
Project Ornithopter; instigated and led my profesor James De Laurier.
After 33 years of research this amazing craft made the first
confirmed, sustained flight of a piloted ornithopter, on the 8th July
2006. Many thanks to Dr De Laurier and Project Ornithopter.
