1889 to 1894 Airplanes

<------Hargrave's model "Flyer No. 7," powered by a compressed air motor.

Lilenthal's first succesful glider, his "No. 3."---->

While Maxim's airplane may not have been successful, his engines were technological marvels. Each engine was light enough the Maxim could lift them.
To facilitate his gliding experiments, Lilenthal built a hill to launch from. He named this "Flight Mountain." -------->
