Smithsonian’s Aviators presents an illustrated and detailed photographic history of aviation, from failed attempts of flying machines at the end of the 19th Century, such as Lilienthal’s glider, through the Wright brothers and on to the world-wide pioneers: Louis Blériot's first flight across the Channel in 1909, the first transatlantic crossing in 1919 by John Alcock and Whitten Brown and Amy Johnson's first flight to Australia in 1930.
