2 Moments in Aviation History f Click for next slide.

3 Since the dawn of time, visionaries and inventors shared one dream - to fly!

4 December 17, 1903 The Wright Brothers made their first successful powered flight.

5 Also on December 17, 1903 Only minutes afterwards… The first noise complaint!

6 The first flight was a mere 120 feet long. Historical records show why…

7 Soon, other brave souls took to the air in their self-constructed machines…

8 And not before long, the first set of aviation regulations were introduced…

9 Airplanes became more and more common, and were soon used for warlike operations.

10 Aviators were considered heroes, such as Freiherr von Richthofen, famous for his nickname…

11 May 20, 1927 Charles Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field near New York City for the first non- stop flight across the Atlantic.

12 His preparations and his machine, the “Spirit of St. Louis”, were (almost) flawless…

13 During World War II, aircraft became more and more advanced and aviation once again made huge leaps. (And the occasional dive.)

14 Mankind was able to fly higher and further with every year that went by.

15 April 12, 1961 The first person to go beyond the great blue yonder was Juri Gagarin on the Vostok 1 mission.

16 July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon during the Apollo 11 space flight.

17 January 22, 1970 The first Boeing 747 entered service on Pan Am’s “New York – London” route.

18 And a few years later, something amazing happened that’s not found in any aviation history books…

19 Aviation has advanced so rapidly, we don’t even need to be in the aircraft anymore.

20 The corresponding evolution of aviators is displayed with the help of fighter pilots in this scientific graphical exposition… t 1920 1940 1980 2010

21 f Chuck, is that you?
