The Gossamer Albatross was a human powered aircraft which on Jun 12th 1979 completed a successful crossing of the English Channel. The aircraft was powered using pedals to drive a large two-bladed propeller.


Piloted by amateur cyclist Bryan Allen, it completed the 22.2 mile crossing in 2 hours and 49 minutes, achieving a top speed of 18 mph and an average altitude of 1.5 metres (5 feet). He landed exhausted after 22 miles on French Coast.


Q? Why hasn’t man-powered flight caught on? Never maintain energy!


Jesus Christ calls us to be His disciples. He knew we could never keep it up by pedaling our own way through life. He knew how necessary it was for Him to return to his Father to send His Spirit.


Acts 1:8 "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit Comes on you!"
