Birth of Aviation In 1901, the first successful flying model propelled by an internal combustion engine was built by Samuel Langley.

It wasn’t until 1903 that Orville and Wilbur Wright built and flew the first human controlled airplane

Samuel Langley Wright Brothers Aviation in World War 1 When World War I started, airplanes were an uncertain and unsafe weapon in warfare. As the war progressed, generals in the field recognized the value of aircrafts in battle and more money was directed toward aviation. Aviation in World War I was known for destroying privacy because any ambushes or army movements could be seen and reported by spy planes. Fighter planes were first
introduced in World
War I to protect spy
planes. But, as they
became more frequently
used, armies discovered
that their stealth and
power could be a weapon
in itself. When the United States entered World War I in 1917, they understood that airplanes would revolutionize battle. As a result, America began to mass produce cargo planes and fighter planes in hopes of dominating the skies. In World War 2 the
destruction that resulted from air warfare was on a new scale. Aviation helped to end World War 1 because airplanes gave an advantage to the United States and Brittan in battle. With the help of airplanes the US and UK defeated Germany quicker which saved time, money, and innocent lives. Aviation in World War 2 In the same year the Antanov 124 was introduced to the French public. Airplanes had begun to change warfare, new bombs could destroy cities in a single attack. The United States wanted to force Japan out of the war and that lead to the dropping of the first two atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The unfathomable destruction that resulted from those bombings laid down the framework for a new era of nuclear warfare. Aviation revolutionized how countries fought wars, but along with its impact on warfare, it also brought the world closer together. Airlines and Transportation Elmo first appered on Sesame Street in 1985 Quotes When World War 2 ended
in 1945 the world was still
fascinated by aviation. It
only took a few pioneers
for the airline buisness to
take off ! William E. Boeing France was the first country to begin flying cargo across Europe. Their first major airline was called Lignes Aériennes Farman, this company transported mail and packages from France to many other European countries such as Russia and Belgum. In 1923 Brittan joined several airlines together to form Imperial Airways. It was revolutionary because it helped to bring the Brittish colonies closer together
Aviation's Impact on the Modern Age “The modern airplane creates a new geographical dimension… There are no distant places any longer: the world is small and the world is one." -Wendell Willkie In 1959, commercial jet services were offered and tourists began flying to the Hawaiian islands. Visitor arrivals in Hawaii increased from 171,367 in 1958 to 6,723,531 visitors in 1990. As airlines evolved they began to transport more then just mail. For the first time people could travel from Los Angeles to New York in one business day. Airlines revolutionized transportation. First Europe, and then the globe, will be linked by flight, and nations so knit together to be next-door neighbors… What railways have done for nations, airways will do for the world” -Claude Grahame-White Instead of a few bombers executing a mission, thousands of bomber planes carried out a single attack.
