"Why fly?

For once you have tasted flight You will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward;

For there you have been, And there you long to return"

Leonardo da Vinci, designing flying machines in the 16th century, only dreamed of flying but, with the mind of an engineer and the soul of an artist, he could taste the magic.
