By: Karizma Carvajal, Hannah Chan, and Kimberly Sinthara
In 1901 Samuel Pierpoint Langley built the first successful flying model propelled by an internal combustion engine , a gasoline powered version of his tandem winged "Areodromes"
On December 17,1903 , the Wright brothers made the successful experiment in which a machine ( aka airplane )rose by its own power, flew naturally at even speed , and descended without damage
Lawrence Sperry demonstrates an automatic gyrostabilizer at Lake Keuka, Hammondsport, New York. A gyroscope linked to sensors keeps the craft level and traveling in a straight line without aid from the human pilot.
The U. S. Postal Service inaugurates airmail service from Polo Grounds in Washington, D.C., on May 15.

Boeing debuts the twin-engine 777. Only a nose mockup was actually built before the vehicle was assembled—and the assembly was only 0.03 mm out of alignment when a wing was attached
NASA teams with American and Russian aerospace industries in a joint research program to develop a second-generation supersonic airliner for the 21st century.The Tu-144LL, .
Today Airplanes are used mostly for transportation of cargo and weapons
This aircraft was presented in April by MIT. Known as the Hybrid Wing Body H series, it is designed to fly at Mach 0.83, carrying 354 passengers over 7,600 nautical miles
This amazing design is the Puffin Personal Aircraft. It is designed to go about 150 miles an hour for about 50 miles. Needless to say, it has been one of NASA’s most viral images.
Also they transport people from one place to another
