National Geographic Channel Blows It Again!

  1. May 10, 2012 #1
    I've just seen a program(me) on the National Geographic Channel entitled: "Confederate Flying Machine", which started out as an attempt to concept-test a design for a "Artis Avis" ("Artificial Bird", or aeroplane) by Confederate inventor R.O. Davidson, but soon became a concept test of the steam=powered airplane perse, using an airframe which used 20th Century concepts in place of Davidson's original design, The program(me) ended without having proven the concept.

    Well, sorry, but just look at this:
