The parachutist was suspended by ropes from each of the four corners. The Flying Machine Book will show you how to construct 35 easy-to-build and fun-to-fly contraptions that can be used indoors or out. Better still, each of these rockets, gliders, boomerangs, launchers, and helicopters can be made for little or no cost using recycled materials.

"As far back as I put thought and labour on the evolution of the flying machine", noted Lawrence Hargrave in a letter of 9 March addressed to President and Members of The Aeronautical Society of Great Britain.

From onwards Hargrave read a series of papers on his aeronautical research before the Royal Society of New South Wales and built over the years a series of model flying.

Based on his studies of birds and how they fly, he wrote a book on aerodynamics that was published in and this text was used by the Wright Brothers as the basis for their designs.

After more than flights, he was killed when he lost control because of a sudden strong wind and crashed into the ground. The history of aviation extends for more than two thousand years, from the earliest forms of aviation such as kites and attempts at tower jumping to supersonic and hypersonic flight by powered, heavier-than-air jets.

Kite flying in China dates back to several hundred years BC and slowly spread around the world. It is thought to be the earliest example of man-made flight. CHAPTER I. EVOLUTION OF TWO-SURFACE FLYING MACHINE. By Octave Chanute.
