His avaition were content to perfect his gliders, they stopped short at the tangible success of supporting planes and relegated the propelling function to the aerial screw propeller, admittedly ths inefficient mechanical device, which can only be retained so long as we are content to move with the speed of an express train and content to risk the consequences.

The Force which lifts the Bird in Flight V. An Illustrated History Dover Transportation. But this very inheritance of disaster gives food for reflection, and it is permissible to speculate whether the development of dynamical flight would not have proceeded on different lines had Lilienthal been spared some more years of useful life.

It was therefore essentially the merit of Lilienthal, by applying his mechanical training to the problem of birdflight, and by a series of systematic investigations, to evolve some order from chaos, and to finally reduce the great mystery to a purely mechanical or dynamical proposition which, although incomplete in many respects, yet gave tangible shape to the whole, making it possible for future workers to fill the various gaps and to rectify some of the earlier assumptions which had.

Motors of from 26 h. It also contains additional material written by Otto’s surviving brother, Gustave, for the publication, including photos of many of the gliders built and flown by Otto after the German book’s publication.

Until that time, and indeed even up to a comparatively recent date, the most varied and frequently impossible speculations were ripe as to the causes which enabled birds to fly. Indeed, the modern aeroplane, with all its astounding records of altitude and distance, is the lineal descendant of that ill-fated motor-glider which caused the death of Lilienthal, and unfortunately the death-roll which he headed is stretching out and ever growing as the number of those who “ride the wind” on aeroplanes is increasing, and their feats becoming more important.
