Frankly, I don't believe there WAS such a machine. But don't get upset with me just yet, because I am equally sure there were concepts for such machines. Those concepts go back to the days of DaVinci, and possibly earlier. And I have no problem accepting the possibility that someone tried to secure funding for such a machine. But feathered, movable wings? No, no. That never got off the ground (or maybe it got off the end of a ramp. Then it hit the ground.)
