R OM AMCC, fantasy, imagination, genius, all thesa elements iir.- but part of the fascinating story of man's efforts to find a machine that would carry him through '.he air, swiftly, efficiently"; From th. crude sketches of a flying machine to be driven by flapping wings, envisioned lino drawn by Leonardo du Vinci, the great painter, vho lived in the fifteenth century, to the blueprints of the Curtis Tanager biplane, it is a fascinating record of achievement accomplished often under tremendous diffculties. Dr. Samuel Pierpont L.-uigley, he great astronomer, who was aec- »tai-v o'' the Smithsonian Institu- tion at Washington, was one of the many-scicntistH who fae- einated by the possibility of building a practical Hying- machine. He built a wonderful steam-driven model which flow 3,000 foot at Qimntico, Virjjhiia, on May 6, 1890. The success of the first heuvior-than-nir machine ever to bo flown in America emboldened L.anglcy to continue his experiments, and with the aid of a grant authorized by Congress, ho started to build a big man-carrying machine. The story of the unfortunate bo- pinning of a flight that ended in the Potomac rather than in the glorification of the inventor is too 20th Century Jean-'Valjeao JLosl in Snow-Covered Mountains of Nevada well known to need repetftio i. It ifi rwt so well known, howeve ·, that years afterward Glenn C urtise topL the.ill-fated machine an 1 successfully flew it at Hnmi londs, N. Y., thereby completely vh dicat- ing Dr. Langley.
