Humans have always been intrigued by the idea of flight. Experiments with Hot Air Balloons led to a pig and duck being the first air travel passengers. From there, the Wright Brothers created the first airplane, and aviation was off to the races. From the jet engine and military aircraft to passenger planes, worldwide travel is now a matter of hours rather than days or weeks.
