Pedal powered airplanes are old business, that I know.  But for a 19-year to accomplish the same feat with no previous flying experience, that is the stuff that history is made of.

Built by Dutch teenager Jesse van Kuijk, the pedal powered plane took 3 years to build and is crafted of balsa wood, polyurethane, and rip-resistant foil.  His maiden voyage transpired this past Sunday and while he only flew 15 feet high for about 45 feet in distance, it’s an amazing accomplishment.
