From the beginning of time, humans have dreamed of soaring through the sky like birds. In the early 20th century those dreams finally came true. Find out about the history and development of modern flight, from Leonardo da Vinci's ornithopter to the Wright Brothers' first flight, to powerful aircraft that fly more than 2,575 kilometres per hour. Through vivid photos and lively text, readers will learn about the people who helped influence the invention of the aeroplane.
