WHO : The brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright
WHAT :Thefirst powered, manned flight
HOW : Two brothers combined there hobbies of hangliding and bicycling to have a flight of 12 seconds
The reason this event was chosen was because of my intest in flying and the amazing impact of this single event.Today millions of people fly every year and take a fraction of the time the Wright Brothers did.Modern inventions combined with their research have enabled America’s Air Force to own the sky.This flight getting off the ground will forever be a milestone in human invention and ability due to the many years of invention it involved.There is no doubt in my mind that the U.S. would be totaly different today if this event were not to happen.
Had this event not occured at this time, to these people, or even at all, live and history would be very different.One example was that in World War One airplanes were used expensively for watching troop movements and mapping enemy fortifications.Had no airplanes existed we may have lost the war.Another example is World War Two, had no airplane eisted in that war all major bombing campaigns would have been impossible, including Pearl Harbor, and the droping of the atomic bombs.The world may be a much better place with the help ofaircraft in those wars in preventing evil from succeding in its plans.
Thefirst powered flight is more important than September 11 because the airplane was the major tool in the acts of terrorism in our country.If airplanes were nonexistant, America would have never been a threat to Al-Queida and the Taliban do to the primitive forms of transportation used before the airplane was invented.If the airplane was not invented the U.S. may have been overcome in a previous conflict and American life would be chang
