Leonardo was not only a master artist, but also an accomplished military engineer.
The polymath thought that if a screw-like structure can rotate fast enough, it will 'drill' into the air and fly.
Leonardo based the design of the flapping wing on birds' wings and a faulty hypothesis.
Leonardo's creative legacy also includes several projects related to bridges. This unusual swing bridge allowed for undisturbed water traffic.
The aim of this extraordinarily complex study was to mimic the different phases of the flight of birds.
The mechanical wing is one of the masterpieces among Leonardo's sketches related to aviation.
