    Flying fish

    Theodore Poesche has presented a plan for navigating the atmosphere with a car propelled by a steam engine without employing a balloon. His plan is to build a long, narrow, and light wooden vessel, with wings of canvass, and propel it by a screw propeller driven by steam engine. “My ship,” he says, “most nearly resembles the flying fish, which progresses by the spiral action of the tail, while its extended fins support in it the air.” An early vision of an airplane. Scientific American, April 1853.
