This air powered plane is an example of a flying machine that uses compressed air to fly through the sky.
Sometimes you don’t need to use fossil fuel to power an airplane. Take a look at physics expert Tom Stanton who built a model airplane that runs entirely on compressed air.
The model airplane he build is based on the diaphragm air-powered engine that he already build.
And the interesting fact is that instead of a fuel tank he used an ordinary plastic soda bottle.
As we already mentioned, in the project he will build a model plane powered by an engine that runs on compressed air. In the video, he explains all the important things behind his projects.
While this is not an air-powered plane, if you want to try an awesome flying model, take a look at this Remote Control Airplane.
