    • On December 17 1903, news came through that two brothers from America had flown a curious air machine for more than a minute.

      From that point onwards air travel developed in leaps and bounds, leading to today's modern aircraft.

      This film from the 1920s contrasts the Wright brothers early planes with the then 'modern' planes of the 1920s.
