Man Flies By Own Lung Power

The Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung ran this picture in its April Fool's Day edition for 1934. The paper explained that the picture showed a new invention that allowed men to fly using their own lung power as the sole source of propulsion. The picture was picked up and widely distributed in the United States by International News Photo.
