Flying Boats by Luigi Prina

We all hope that when we become older, we never lose our sense of imagination, creativity or fun. Luigi Prina is an 83 year old architect who certainly hasn’t. When he was just 12, he won a national aircraft modelling competition. At the age of 66, he made a best with painter and boat builder Eugenio Tomiolo that he could take one of his small ships and make it fly like an aeroplane. You only have to watch the video above to see the results.
