In 1842, Stringfellow and another Englishman, William Benson, buHt what Is considered the first steam-driven airplane. But this craft never got off the ground. Stringfellow continued to experiment with similar models and in 1848 succeeded in completing a model which attained e height of 120 feet under its own power, However, none of Stringfellow'* later models could be made to fly. Stringfellow'* experiment* helped answer many questions about flight and several persons tried to invent a machine which would carry a passenger.
