Cayley Aeroplane

 

Sir George Cayley, in 1804, built and flew a successful model. Five years later he constructed a full size glider with a wing area of 300 sq.ft (27.87sq.m). By 1853 he had built a more advanced man-carrying version. On this his reluctant coachman was carried over a small valley, in the grounds of Cayley’s home at Brompton Hall.
