On the Wings of the Albatross

On the Wings of the Albatross (opens in new tab)


Coleridge's Ancient Mariner might have more appreciated that albatross hanging from his neck had he first read about this "grandest living flying machine on earth" at this excellent National Geographic site. The albatross spends most of it's time at sea and in air due to it's efficiently designed body. The site offers an in-depth look at these fearless flyers.
