We’ve all seen the picture of early flying machines from the times of the great empires and wondered how on earth they could have built mechanical flying craft. Well what if they built hot air balloons? Would it have taken very long for the minds of those who built some of the great structures of ancient time to realise that most of what comes out of a fire goes up?

Of course, material and sewing techniques may have stood in their way. But a hot air balloon seems much more plausible to me then a mechanical contraption.

Whats think?

Whats think? Me thinks this.

But yeah, I suppose the probability of ancient races building/designing hot air balloons is much greater than the one of them designing heavier-than-air craft. But I'll tell you what, that airplane model is damn interesting . . .
