History of Flying

The heights we achieve today are only possible because of what happened yesterday. In History of Flying we'll explore how the earlier days of flight have shaped the airplanes of today. From the dreamers of past centuries & millennia, to the pioneering personalities of recent years, from the rudimentary wings of Icarus through the designs of DaVinci to the advancing technologies of the Montgolfiers and the Wrights, join us as we travel back in time to tell the tales that accompanied the triumphs and tribulations of taking flight.‍
