Wright flyer III

The Wright Flyer III was the world’s first practical powered aeroplane, sturdy enough to withstand repeated flights and able to stay aloft for as long as its fuel lasted. Through a remarkable mix of scientific inquiry and hands-on experimentation, the dauntless American brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright cracked the challenge of sustained, controlled, heavier-than-air flight. At Kill Devil Hills. North Carolina, on 17 December 1903, […]

Early attemps

Although mankind has mastered flight only in the last hundred years, humans have been attempting to emulate the birds for centuries. Some have even strapped on wings and jumped from great heights, only to leant the hard way that there is a lot more to flying than simply flapping your amis. The first flying machines to be historically documented were kites, which were built in […]

Antoinette Monobloc

French aviation pioneers often favoured elegance and ingenuity over plain practicality. The Société Antoinette produced a series of aesthetically satisfying, technically advanced monoplanes designed by engineer and former artist Léon Levavasseur. Sadly, they did not  always fulfil their promise. The Antoinette IV, the company’s first monoplane, famously failed to cross the Channel in July 1909, ditching instead in the sea. It was the pilot on that […]

Radley-England Water Plane

Designed and built in Britain by James Rladley and Eric Gordon England, the Waterplane was the world’s first tri-motor aeroplane. Its three 50-hp rotary engines were mounted between the wings. each engine had its own controls and an independent chain drive linking it to the propeller shaft above. Together the engines drove a large fourbladed pusher propeller. The aircraft was sizeable […]

Fabre Hydravion

Looking at aeroplanes from the pioneering era of flight, it sometimes seems almost incredible that such machines actually flew. The freakish Hydravion is certainly a case in point. Yet this odd-looking aircrafl enjoys the distinction of being; the first seaplane to make a successful flight – and it did so with a pilot who had never flown before. Frenchman Henri Fabre, […]

Ryan NYP

In 1927 airmail pilot Charles Lindbergh decided to compete for a $25.000 prize offered for the first person to fly non-stop between New York and Paris. Ryan Airlines of San Diego, California, agreed to build him an aeroplane in 60 days for $6.000 ($10,580 with the engine included). The New-York-to-Paris (NYP) aircraft was based on Ryan’s M.2 high-wing monoplane, but was specially adapted to accommodate greatly […]

Pilcher Triplane

Fllight pioneer Percy Pilcher is one of Britain’s unsung heroes. But for a fatal accident it is possible that he, rather than the celebrated Wright brothers, might have solved the riddle of powered, controlled, heavier-than -air flight. Inspired by Lilienthal, Pilcher built four gliders in 1895, the last of which, the Hawk, was the most successful. In 1897, working with engineer Walter Wilson, he […]

Ader avion III

Whenever a sceptic wants to cast doubt on the Wright brothers’ claim to be “firsl to fly”. he is likely to cite the experiments of French engineer Clément Ader. Where most aviation pioneers studied the flight of birds, Ader perversely, modelled his flying machines on bats. His weirdly gothic steam-powered monoplanes were sufficiently impressive to attract financial hacking from the French army, but whether they […]

The influence of war

From 1914 to 1918, World War I resulted in the transformation of aircraft from slow, frail vehicles into agile, capable fighting machines. The governments of the world began to see the military potential of air power, leading to tremendous progress, particularly in the fields of engine technology  and aerodynamics. Although Wright Aircraft had produced the first military airplanes in 1908, […]
