Before television, people came to movie theatres to watch the news. British Pathé was at the forefront of cinematic journalism, blending information with entertainment to popular effect. Over the course of a century, it documented everything from major armed conflicts and seismic political crises to the curious hobbies and eccentric lives of ordinary people. If it happened, British Pathé filmed it. Now considered to be the finest newsreel archive in the world, British Pathé is a treasure trove of 85,000 films unrivalled in their historical and cultural significance. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Airbike First Flight

I found this old video on my computer. It's the first flight in my Airbike after building it in my basement. I had finished up the paperwork with the FAA earlier that week and received my tailwheel endorsement that afternoon. The weather was perfect and there was nothing left to do but go fly. The monthly EAA chapter meeting happened to be that night, so I ended up with a few extra helpers and a bit of a crowd. The flight went well, even though my nerves were tested a bit.The guy pulling the starter rope is Wally. He was my...

Incredible Flying Motor Bike...

A few years ago my brother decided to make his 350 cc motor bike fly. A flyer of light aircraft and an amateur inventor, he was frustrated by the fact that, if he flew anywhere, he had no transport at the other end. So using only parts purchased at the local hardware store and an old hang glider wing, he rigged up the Sky Bike. The wings, propeller and other modifications take about 10 minutes to put on the bike. After the flight, they can then be removed just as quickly allowing the flyer to ride off on the motor bike. This video...
