Progression of airplanes

  1. 1. Progression of Airplanes<br />By: D.J. Casteel<br />
  2. 2. Why I should I Care?<br />The real question is why dont we care! Airplanes have helped on pretty much everything.<br /> <br />-Transportation<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />-War<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />-Trade<br /> <br />
  3. 3. The Early 1900's<br />on December 17, 1903. In the two years afterward, the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.<br />
  4. 4.   Pictures<br />Many people thought <br />they were crazy for <br />thinking something that <br />big wouldnt fly. THEY<br /> PROOVED THEM <br />WRONG<br />
  5. 5. The Big Idea<br /> The Wright Brothers, Orville (1871-1948) and Wilbur (1867-1912), were a pair of American inventors who are generally credited with making the first controlled, powered, heavier-than-air flight. In the years afterward, they developed their flying machine into the world's first practical fixed-wing aircraft, along with many other aviation milestones.<br />
  6. 6. That Great Day<br />On Monday, December 14, 1903, when both the Wright flyer and the wind were ready, the brothers decided that Wilbur would take the first turn as pilot for the historic flight. Some readers might suppose that this was because Wilbur was older, or because he had taken the early lead in the project or perhaps because of some difference in piloting skills. It was none of these. It was decided by flipping a coin. They and the ground crew (5 lifeguards from the beach) had lugged the plane weighing six hundred pounds 1/4 mile to the big hill, laid out the 60-foot monorail, and were ready to go. After an initial problem getting it unhooked because of the slope, the plane accelerated down the track so fast that Orville, running alongside to steady the wing by holding on to an upright, couldn't keep up. Wilbur turned the sensitive rudder up too sharply, the flying machine nosed up, slowed, came down in that position, and the left wing hit the sandy hillside and swung the plane around, breaking several parts. Although they didn't consider this a real flight, they now knew it would work. <br />
  7. 7. The Wright Brothers Rock!<br />The citizens took a look at the Wrights airplane and instantly <br />that that would never fly, but the soon prooved them wrong.<br />

  9. 9. The 3 Questions<br />#1. Can YOU explain what the plane looked like?<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />#2.What year did the flight happen?<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />#3.What did others think about the plane?<br />
