From the time that humans have been on this planet, they have always been fascinated by flying. For the longest time, different inventors throughout history have tried to find ways to soar through the air much like our winged neighbors, birds. It was not until 1903 when the Wright brothers conducted the first powered flight in human history.

Little did they know that they were the base of today's aviation foundation. Without them, something like events that happened in this video may have not existed.
