Although the glider was towed to an altitude of 200’-300’ by an automobile, the sails gave no propulsive power. Tests and analysis have proven that sail power is an aerodynamic impossibility. We probably will never know if Domenjoz’s intent was pure carnival or serious. Domenjoz abandoned the glider in 1930; in 1974, it was rescued and donated to OHTM, and has been fully restored.
