The squadron was ordered to France in January 1916 and his first mission was an aerial spotter for British artillery. Bishop and pilot Neville flew over German lines near Boisdinghem and when the German howitzer was found, they relayed co-ordinates to the British, who then bombarded and destroyed the target. Aerial combat In November 1916 after receiving his wings, Bishop was attached to No. 37 Squadron RFC at Sutton's Farm, Essex flying the BE.2c. Bishop claimed his first victory when his was one of four Nieuports that engaged three Albatros D.III Scouts near St Leger.
Military production again increased during WWII, and Harley-Davidson won an award of excellence for wartime production in 1943. The company's competition, Hendee, went out of business in 1953, leaving Harley-Davidson as the only U.S. motorcycle producer. The 1960's marked the beginning of a European division known as Aermacchi Harley-Davidson. The company also started to produce its own fiberglass components under the new Tomahawk Division in 1963. Production and assembly operations were upgraded in 1973, when a new plant in York Pennsylvania was opened.
The two end up moving in together, and she becomes very influential by providing confidence for Hughes during his journey to succeed in aviation. During this time, Hughes took an interest in passenger aviation as well, purchasing Transcontinental & Western Air (TWA), the predecessor to his re-named company Trans World Airlines. Hughes also took his aviation goals to another level and broke aviation records such as flying around the world in the new record time of four days, and built the fastest plane on earth at the time. Eventually Hughes and Hepburn break up, and he learned that the Pan Am airline company wanted to put his TWA out of business. Hughes then proceeded to get a contract from the Air Force to build a reconnaissance plane and a troop transport aircraft.
At a very young age he took interest in Leonardo da Vinci’s life and works as well as Jules Verne novels. In Robur The Conqueror, Verne writes of an inventor creating many flying contraptions (Whitman, 1972). Da Vinci’s journal included many drawings of aircrafts including the well-known screw-like helicopter. Both inspired Sikorsky to invent, as he described, “A flying machine offering reasonable speed, [safety, and controllability] also combining take off and landing in a small area” (Whitman, 1972). With this in mind at age 11 he started experimenting with model aircrafts, one of them being a small rubber band power helicopter.
(Who) “Any minute now I will see (sight) President Kennedy” he spoke aloud. Seamus was born in Dallas, Texas (Where) in 1938 (When) to Irish immigrants. As a young (Adjective) lad, (noun) he was always interested in airplanes, the fighter pilots that he saw in the movies, and he always wondered (POV self- reflection) what it would be like to fly. (verb) After graduating from college with a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautics, he decided to join the Navy and fly the F-4 Phantom, a fighter jet known for supersonic speeds and the first of its kind to use only missiles to defend itself. (Why) A few years passed and one hot, humid, sunny day he was approached
October Sky Essay Summary: The movie October Sky is a heart moving story about Homer Hickam who was inspired to build a rocket and never gave up until his dreams became true. Homer Hickam was a teenage boy from a mining town in West Virginia called Coalwood. He inspired to build rockets when he seen the first artificial satellite, Sputnik, streak across the stars. With his friends and the local nerd, Homer sets out to do just that but with many errors and trials. Along with the town, Homer's father thought they were wasting their time with their rockets.
What were some of his imaginative sketches? Da Vinci, who was fascinated by the idea of human flight. Contained in the Codex Atlanticus, he diagrammed one of the one of the first parachutes designed in the late 15th century as a way for people to drift gracefully through the air. In his notebook he remarks that with such a device anyone can jump from any height without injury: “If a man have a tent made of linen of which apertures (openings) have all been stopped up, and it be twelve braccia (about 23 feet) across and twelve in depth, he will be able to throw himself down from any great height without suffering an injury.” Like much of Leonardo Da Vinci’s ideas, the parachute was never actually built or tested by Da Vinci himself and because he never published his diagrams, nobody else knew about them until his notebooks were discovered long after his death. Perhaps the most distinct and unique aspect of Da Vinci’s parachute design was that the canopy was shaped like a triangle rather than round and was draped with cloth, leading many to question whether it would actually have enough air resistance.
PRELUDE Hello there my name is Marco Andretti; I live in a small town forty-five minutes away from downtown New York. It is the year 2387 and the world is at peace with one another there is no war and there have been multiple breakthroughs in science and technology. One of which is the air board; this is something that allows the user to freely ride the magnetic fields of the planet, thus creating the Air Boarding World Federation (A.B.W.F). A racing league of three member teams competing for a chance to win the World Grand Prix, the teams are comprised of three classes of racers. Speed: racers driven to reach new top speeds every chance they get, Flight: scout racers that take to the skies in order to assist their teammates, Power: bulldozers
In 1730 John Kay had made a machine that twisted string to make rope. There was little is known about his early life but he was living in Bury when he invented the flying shuttle which was a key contribute to the Industrial Revolution. John Kay always called this invention a wheeled shuttle but others used the name fly-shuttle and then later flying shuttle. For centuries handloom weaving had been carried out on the basis of the shuttle bearing the yarn being passed slowly and awkwardly from one hand to the other. In 1733 Kay made his flying shuttle that really increased the speed of this process.
Miyazaki's huge success has made him an internationally praised animation artist and director. He was born on January 5, 1941 in Tokyo and his animation career began in 1961. During World War II, his father was in charge of Miyazaki Airplane, which made rudders for fighter planes. Miyazaki developed a fascination with airplanes and began to draw airplanes. His interest in aviation can be seen in many of his films.
