The Concept of the Airplane

During many centuries mankind attempted to take off and conquer air space. A kite was invented in ancient China, while in the 18th century they got over terrestrial gravity for the first time in France by using a balloon filled with hot air. But all these devices depended on the wind, and couldn't provide people with the flight freedom like birds had. But in 1903 two brothers Orwell and Wilbur Wright made the first flight in an machine constructed by themselves. This machine was named an airplane, and that was a moment when a human being could control a flight. Get to know in a new film by RTG TV what power keeps an airplane in the air and what modern aircrafts are made of.
