Hezarfen

By Gerard @presurfer
An animation based on the Turkish character Hezarfen Ahmed Celebi who seemed to have achieved sustained unpowered flight. The story goes that Hezarfen first practiced by flying over the pulpit of Okimeydani eight or nine times with eagle wings, using the force of the wind. Then, as Sultan Murad Khan was watching, he flew from the very top of the 205ft-high Galata Tower and landed in the Dogancilar square in Uskudar.
