Test flying a human-powered plane

Bang Goes The Theory's Jem Stansfield attempts to build a plane which is kept in the air by the energy of his own pedalling.

Bang Goes The Theory presenter Jem Stansfield is attempting to fly a human-powered plane.

Jem designed the plane which works on pedal power and is about to take the aircraft on its first - and possibly only - flight.

You can read more about the human-powered plane experiment at the BBC TV blog.
