A pictorial history of the airplane and the men and women associated with flight

Since the beginning of time, humans have wanted to fly. While this goal was sought in many ways (fashioning wings and wearing them, hot air balloons), it wasn't until the beginning of the 20th century that the modern concept of the airplane was successfully achieved. Following is a pictorial history of flight and of the men and women associated with this history.
