Fascinating facts about flying machines

Man has been trying to flying for a very long time. There are tales about people trying to fly in Greek and Roman legends. The first parachute was built to save people's lives. Before the parachute was built people living and working in buildings that were several floors high often would die if their building caught on fire because there were no fire escapes.

The idea of the parachute was to allow people to float to the ground before the fire reached the upper floors of a building. The first parachutes had wooden frames. The parachutes were covered with linen. Later silk and nylon was used for the canopies.
