This is an original press photo. Man's attempt to fly under his own power has come to nought ever since a Greek fellow named Icarus melted his wings by soaring too close to the sun. Recently some 30 dreamers at a Birdman Rally in Selsey, England, stepped out into space, off a 30 foot high platform, bearing along an assortment of kites, glides and wing flaps. They, too, failed to pass the law of gravity. This chap got wet after a short trip. None of the contestants made the required distance of 50 yards.Photo measures 10 x 8.25inches. Photo is dated 9-4-1974.
