Metal Birds

Birds have been flying for millions of years. Humans have only been flying for about a hundred years. Using kites, humans have moved on to develop gliders, airships, helicopters, and airplanes.

The Wright Brothers were the inventors who created the first successful airplane. They had their first human flight on December 17, 1903.

Planes have wings with a special shape. The wings are important in lifting the plane into the air. An engine provides the power to move the plane.

The only living things capable of flight are insects, birds and bats.
