Though the first actual helicopter wasn’t built until the 1940s, it is believed that Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches from the late 15th century were the predecessor to the modern-day flying machine.
Da Vinci’s helicopter measured more than 15 feet in diameter and was made from reed, linen and wire. It was to be powered by four men, standing on a central platform turning cranks to rotate the shaft. With enough rotation, da Vinci believed the invention would lift off the ground. This Curiocity will take you back to explore the creative genius of da Vinci, while opening your mind to the possibilities that lay ahead in Brisbane.
