Man’s early flight attempts

It has always been a man’s wish to conquer the open skies and learn the arts of flying. Nowadays, taking a plane to a far away country or state is almost like stepping on a bus and getting from one point to another. It’s taken for granted until something unexpected happens and they shut down the airports. But the way to be able to fly as we do today took a lot of brave and clever people to take up the challenge. It took a lot of patience, trial and error situations and probably a lot of broken bones and lives as well to be honest.
The following video shows us some old footage where people were filming their attempts at flying. You got to give them plenty of credit since they didn’t really know better and everyone did something different in that respect. None of these were successful per se but some of them are closer to the right path than others.
