Original footage of aircraft from the First World War.

This is some pretty amazing footage here. The thing about this to keep in mind is that these guys were lucky at best to come back in one piece and actually land their planes...made of wood,canvas, and wire. They would drop their bombs by hand...just think how far we have come in just a short period of time in the scope of things. Enjoy.

Actually thought some people would find this video fascinating
...I guess I was wrong. Well thought a little history and rare film footage would interest the guys into planes at least....Oh well.
