The idea of flight has fascinated people for centuries, even to this day, which is why I decided to do research on airplanes. When I researched the history on planes, I was surprised at the effort and the time people long ago spent trying to make a machine that flies. I also wondered, like many, how an airplane is able to fly and stay in the air. Wanting to know the answers to these types of questions I had. It gave me the determination to really research this topic The History of Airplanes. This research paper brought me to some interesting opportunity's to learn more about, the airplane. I got too see what makes an airplane really fly and how the forces of nature work on airplane. I learned a lot about the structure of airplanes, but part of wanting to know about something is having an interest in it from the beginning. .
The idea of flying existed from a long time ago. Ancient legends showed numerous Cave Drawings of winged creatures in reference to the possibility of flight. Philosophers believed that it could be achieved by imitating the wing motions of birds. The artist Leonardo Da Vinci Also know as the father of aviation etched ideas on how a man could fly. Then the Montgolfier Brothers came up with the lighter air concept, which started balloons. Balloons where used in the Prussian War, U.S. Civil War, and World War I. In the 19th Century the development of aviation took various paths during the 19th century. Then the Sir George Cayley was a British aeronautical engineer and inventor. He proved his ideas of flight with experiments involving kites and controlled human-carrying gliders.
Development of the First Airplane.
The Wright Brothers On December 17, 1903, near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright made the world's first successful flights in a heavier-than-air aircraft. The brothers had designed, constructed, and flown the airplane.
