flight-sky-clouds-cloudy-mediumPlanes have revolutionized the way that we travel. Now, people are able to get long distances in a shorter amount of time. When you are trying to vacation, by flying, you are able to spend more time at your vacation destination.


When it comes to planes, Surprise Ride,, tells us things that we may not have known:

• Orville and Wilbur Wright designed the first successful airplane
• Over 80% of people are afraid of flying
• Most of an airplane is make from lightweight aluminum

• All airplanes have a flight data recorder which keeps track of everything that the plane does
• On each side of the plane there is an aileron which causes the plane turn to the right or the left

Airplanes are a great way for people to travel. It makes sense that thousands of people use airplanes to get to far away distances in a short amount of time. When you do have an airplane, though, it is important that while they are on the ground they are being taken care of. An airplane, while grounded, is usually kept in an airplane hangar. The hanger needs to be large enough to store all of the airplanes, as well as store the things needed to maintain the airplane.
