[Lights of India] Marvellous Early Flying Machines


Kitty Hawk

In one of the most famous images in aviation history, the Wright brothers -- Orville piloting, Wilbur running alongside -- make the first-ever powered, sustained, controlled flight on 17 December, 1903, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In the years just before and after, the science and the art of aviation caught the public imagination across the world, like few technological pursuits have. (National Archives/Getty Images)

Look! Up in the Sky!French aviation pioneer Hubert Latham attempted to cross the English Channel in his Antoinette IV monoplane in 1909. He didn't make it -- but he did become the first person to successfully ditch a powered aircraft in the water. Most machines of the era were ingenious; many were downright beautiful; some were impractical, but in one way or another, all were fantastic. (Topical Press Agency/Getty Images)
