Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This article is an overview of primarily pre-20th century flying machines and work, and an analysis of the debates over early flying machines. The goal is to examine the properties of flying machines, and to list the claims to allow a proper analysis of all the early flying machines. There are conflicting views as to what was the first flying machine. The controversy of invention is not limited to flight e.g.: Debates over the tallest building tend to break into debates around what constitutes a building and what is the most important measure of such structures' height. In the same way some records of flying machines can come down to the exact definition of what, for example, constitutes a "flying machine," or "flight," or even "first."show more
