The History Of Aviation

Tomorrow for Science class we are covering erosion, photography, and the history of aviation. If you don't remember what you learned in school, ahem like me, then the videos below will refresh your memory. I find most interesting that the Wright brothers, neither one of them even graduated high school. I also found interesting that the problem with flying was not actually the flying part, but controlling the plane. We have a lovely childrens encyclopedia that was given to us by friends, and it has one whole book on the history of aviation. We will not be reading the whole thing tomorrow LOL! The videos are in black and white and quite old but you will get more from listening than by seeing in this case. Enjoy!

I don't remember ever studying the history of aviation in school. I remember learning a little bit about it on trips to North Carolina but that was it.

I vaguely remember learning about the Wright brothers but I do not remember anything else being taught.
