1968年,早期版本的飞机帆由John Walker设计和制造,用于测试他的革 命性翼帆概念。这篇文章于196 8年在“设计”杂志上发表。

198 9年,在协和工作的飞机设计师John Walker在英国普利茅斯Devonport Dockyard设计并制造了飞机帆。
她使用现代飞机制造技术,使用环氧树脂层压板,Nomex,Airex泡沫,碳和玻璃等最新高科技材料,耗资数百万美元,是一笔不惜重金的建设。
Planesail后来也被称为蓝色新星和Inventure。

1991年,飞机帆作为第一艘穿过大西洋的翼帆游艇创造了历史。尽管为她的跨大西洋航行着迷,她的速度达到了18节。她还遇到了飓风克劳德特和安德鲁。
约翰沃克报道说:风在午夜时分以50节的速度“下班”,随着风声的不断增加,在那里停留了几个小时。我们只能估计它可能达到60-70节。无论如何,很多。从后来对我们的GPS,日志和佛罗里达州珊瑚山墙飓风中心的信息分析中,似乎我们已经从Claudette夫人的核心经过了大约60英里的路程,如果我们无法将蓝色新星围绕在我们身边,应该直接进入她的中心。
通过自由女神像前往曼哈顿岛航行的蓝色新星对我们来说是一个伟大的时刻,而从盘旋直升机拍摄的电视电影直接传递给晚间新闻。一位迷人的海关人员甚至懒得看我们的护照,更不用说寻找船只。他高兴地制作了我们的巡航许可证,并祝愿我们在美国过得愉快。

1991
Plane sail made history as the first Wing sail yacht to cross the Atlantic. Though heavily landen for her transatlantic voyage, she achieved speeds of 18 knots.
She also encountered hurricanes Claudette & Andrew.
John Walker reported:
The wind had gone “off the clock” at 50 knots by midnight and stayed there for several hours as the noise of the wind continued to increase. We can only estimate that it reached perhaps 60-70 knots. Plenty, anyway. From later analysis of information from our GPS, log and the Hurricane Centre in Coral Gables, Florida, it seemed that we had passed around 60 miles from the core of Madame Claudette, and if we hadn't been able to gybe Blue Nova round we should have gone straight on into her centre.
and
Sailing Blue Nova up towards Manhattan Island past the Statue of Liberty was a great moment for us all, and TV film shot from a circling helicopter made it straight on to the evening news. A charming Customs man didn't even bother to look at our passports, let alone search the ship. He cheerfully made out our Cruising Permit and wished us a happy stay in the US.

1995 - Cowes Week
The Duke of Edinburgh spent 4 hours on board with only his personal bodyguard, the designer John Walker, and a photographer.
1997
28 February: The Next Challenge Ltd, set up by Trevor Jones in 1995, purchases Planesail from Walker Wingsail plc.
Planesail was customized by Simon Rogers for a circumnavigation by wheelchair bound quadriplegic, Trevor Jones.
Trevor intended to be the first quadriplegic to sail around the world.
Trevor was the Navy pilot who plucked Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson to safety after his transatlantic balloon crashed into the Irish Sea in 1987.
14 October: Trevor throws the orange gauntlet at Richard Branson's feet at 10 yr rescue reunion on HMS Endurance, challenging him, wagering that Trevor would be the first to make it around the world in a customized yacht, before Branson made it around the world in a balloon.
