Introduction: The Airplane is a substantial and an efficient vehicle that is very convenient system of transport that flies through the air. It is considered as one of the most important engineering achievements and inventions of all time. Designs of planes’ interior and exterior, engine types, and fuel have shown remarkable change throughout time. Various discoveries had changed the world in many contrasting ways. Electricity and the internet are examples of those discoveries. This essay will scrutinize the discovery or invention and history of airplanes and its evolution throughout time. Airplanes had significantly changed the world. They are currently considered as the most preferred and mostly used systems of transport. The history of airplanes: “Samuel Pierpont Langley builds a gasoline-powered version of his tandem-winged "Aerodromes." the first successful flying model to be propelled by an internal combustion engine. As early as 1896 he launches steam-propelled models with wingspans of up to 15 feet on flights of more than half a mile.”(1) “Samuel P. Langley had been interested in flight, he said, " long as I can remember anything."”(2) Accordingly, Samuel Pierpont Langley almost succeeded with inventing the airplane before the Wright brothers, and very few people realize that. However, “On December 17, 1903, Wilbur…show more content…
There could be many disadvantages they could cause. Firstly, the emissions that the airplanes give off are considered to be air pollutant in which 2.5 percent of carbon dioxide is given off. One way to reduce the emissions is trying to create seminars that could educate people on reducing their usage of everyday machines that give off carbon dioxide or nitrogen oxide like cars or replace them by using environment friendly gadgets or machines in order to reduce the pollution in the
