People have long found the idea of flight to be fascinating. What could be more majestic than soaring through the air like a bird with no cares in the world? Humanity’s birdlike flight capabilities are limited to activities such as paragliding and hang gliding. But we humans are smart creatures. We figured out that there are more than just those two ways to take to the skies. There are also airplanes. Although flying in an airplane is a somewhat less majestic experience than flying like a bird might be (and airplane passengers seem to have significantly more cares than birds do), planes are still a nice way to get from here to there.
