An airplane travels with a long and interesting history, from the first commercial flight on the modern day Boeing 247 from 1933. This important event was a sure sign during the aviation era, but was just one of many great achievements. Some of the exciting sights in the aviation history skipped in the past century are highlighted.
During the 1930s airship appeared in the history of aviation. One such example of their popularity was the German passenger ship LZ 129 Hindenburg. But the incident around this airliner was sad because of a tragedy during the flight. A Hindenburg disaster that fired a fire and crashed in an air raid was planned at Lakehurst Naval Airport in Manchester, New Jersey. In this tragic incident, 35 deaths were counted, and it goes without saying that confidence in airships was dramatically reduced.
Chuck Yeager Breaking the Sound Barrier
Chuck Yeager, in 1947, shattered the soundtrack, which marked another major event in aviation history. Yeager was a US Air Force pilot and flew on the experimental Bell X-1 Mach 1. When that happened, it was 45,000 feet tall. Bell X-1 is featured at the Smithsonian Institute's National Aerospace Museum. Yeager received more than one prize for this achievement, including the MacKay and Collier trophy in 1948 and the 1954 Harmon International trophy. Formerly, Myra, West Virginia, went through other sound and height barriers  Boeing 747
Fast forwarding Chuck Yeager's main accomplishments to the 1970s, many people recognize the Boeing 747 and this is often called the "jumbo jet" of extreme aircraft. His cargo and commercial flight position make this an important part of the history of aviation. This flight, Boeing 747, made its first commercial flight from New York to London at the beginning of this decade. This model mainly includes airlines British Airways, Korean Air, Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Boeing 747, besides being recognizable, is important because it can carry as much a passenger or cargo bag.
Aviation continues to develop
The Zeppelin Hindenburg crisis, Chuck Yeager's breakdown of sound barriers, and the introduction of the Boeing 747 jumbo reagent are just three of the many turning points in the aviation industry. Although there are many more events in the historical period, these shows some riddles. Such events have helped shape aviation history and provide opportunities for learning and thinking. The flight has come a long way and will change and grow in the coming years, making it an exciting part of technology and history!
