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 2575 kilometres per hour. Through vivid photos and lively text readers will learn about the people who helped influence the invention of the aeroplane.
