The Wright Brothers initially underestimated the difficulties involved in flying, and they were apparently surprised by the fact that so many others were working on solving the ´´problem of human flight´´ already. Decades before their own historic plane would end up in the National Air & Space Museum, Wilbur and Orville asked the Smithsonian for reading materials and brushed up on everything from the works of their contemporaries to Leonardo Da Vinci. Undeterred by the work, and the fact that several would-be pioneers died in crashes trying to control gliders, the Wright Brothers tested out gliding at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina for several years, working to perfect pilot control before trying powered flight.In December 1903, the brothers had done enough scientific work with concepts like lift to help their aeronautical designs, and they had the technical know-how to work with engines. On December 17, the brothers took turns making history’s first successful powered flights. The fourth and final flight lasted nearly a minute and covered nearly 900 feet. The Wright Flyer I had just made history, and minutes later it would be permanently damaged after wind gusts tipped it over; it would never fly again.A decade later, aircraft appeared in the skies over the battlefields of World War I, but they did not represent a complete novelty in warfare either, at least not during the early months of World War I. While airplanes had never before appeared above the field of war, other aerial vehicles had already been in use for decades, and balloons had carried soldiers above the landscape for centuries to provide a high observation point superior to most geological features. The French used a balloon for this purpose at the Battle of Fleurus in 1794, and by the American Civil War, military hydrogen balloons saw frequent use, filled from wagons generating hydrogen from iron filings and sulfuric acid. The balloonist Thaddeus Lowe persuaded President Abraham Lin 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Bernard. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/162232/bk_acx0_162232_sample.mp3.

A crash landing at a remote island airstrip...a scary encounter with an octopus...green ants that defend their tree by attacking anyone who touches it...a mysterious lava-tube cave with hikers´ flashlights floating like fireflies down into its blackness...fruit bats noisily lobbing mangos onto your cabin´s tin roof...the beauties - and dangers - of the crocodile-infested Kakadu National Park...a rugby match in Northern Territory (and why Aussie girls never root for their teams)... In this colorful and remarkable book, written by a colorful and remarkable woman pilot, you´ll find the most enjoyable way to discover Australia - by flying a light airplane to its places of greatest interest while watching the exotic landscape unroll beneath you: vistas of giant paisley patterned earth, caused by underlying salt strata; stunning views of red landscapes, uplifted and contorted during the earth´s primordial boil; the enormously long white beaches of Western Australia, lonesome and edged by brilliant aquas; and the Indian Ocean to the south, marked by hundreds of miles of cliffs (whales breed there.... You could get lucky). You don´t have to be a pilot to enjoy this book. The author also wrote it for nonflyers, in nontechnical terms, to let you see amazing things that pilots experience from their very special perspective. 1. Language: English.

There´s hardly a day now that an airline incident of some sort or another is not in the news. We´re taking a lot closer look at air travel these days than ever before. Therefore, as regards the psychology of travel, we should take a much closer look at what actually happens on airplanes. So, in The Travel Psychologist Travel Tales Series, that´s exactly what I do. Air-travel-life stories include the full range of the human air travel experience, from preboarding incidents to arrivals; from the cabin to the loo; from the public and private lives of airline personnel as well as passengers - from the pilots, to the stews, to you; from that which makes us laugh to that which makes us cry as well as, unfortunately, to that which creates abject fear and terror in the skies. 1.
