“...we have some history together that hasn’t happened yet.”

The Utah Valley University school of Aviation Science released a short, animated film on the history of flight. The film runs through Leonardo da Vinci's designs of flying machines and parachutes in the 1480s to the Montgolfier Brothers' hot air balloons in 1783, from the infamous Wright Brothers in 1903 to modern-day aviation. Next time you squeeze into an airplane seat and get overcharged for a tiny drink, raise your plastic glass to these pioneers of aviation.
