UPCOMING EVENTS



Flight Timeline

Here below are some examples of what exists on this flight timeline. You may be familiar with many of the entries. But you may also be surprised to see what else fits the patterns I have described here within this website. Than when you are finished reviewing the entries below click on the button at the bottom of this page to see the timeline, there you will find even more surprises.

The beginnings of Heavier-than-air powered flight

On December 17th, 1903 the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, sons of Milton Wright, a Bishop of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, are credited with the first heavier-than-air powered flight. In Europe the same feat was accomplished in 1906 when Traian Vuia flew his plane the “Traian Vuia I”, which had received a patent on August 17th, 1903. Traian Vuia was born 31 years earlier on August 17th, 1872. Today Timisoara International Airport (TSR), Romania's third largest airport in terms of air traffic, carries his name. Timisoara's first airport (Timisoara Communal Airport) was built a few kilometers away from the current airport's position, in the town of Mosnita Veche. The first airplane landed there was on July 17, 1935.

But this was not the first airplane landing or taking off from an airport in Romania, the first was in Bucharest "Aurel Vlaicu" Airport which is largely known as Baneasa Airport or Bucharest City Airport. The airport is located in Baneasa district, 8.5 km (5.3 mi) north of Bucharest, Romania. The first flights in the Baneasa area took place in 1909 and they were carried out by the French pilot and aviation pioneer Louis Blériot. In 1912 the first flight school in Romania was opened on Baneasa airfield. This makes Baneasa airport the oldest continuously operating airport in Eastern Europe, and among the oldest five airports in the world. Aurel Vlaicu who the Bucharest Airport is named after and Louis Bleriot both fit other patterns identified within this website.

In the United States, along with the Wright Brothers there was another player who some in Michigan claimed to have been the first true aviator of a motorized heavier-than-air aircraft. Augustus Moore Herring was this individual and he died on July 17th, 1926. But the story of Augustus Herring doesn’t end here it only begins.

In 1909 Augustus Herring formed an aviation company with Glenn Curtiss, the Herring-Curtiss Company. It was considered the first US aircraft company. In 1910 Herring left Curtiss to join with Starling Burgess forming the Herring-Burgess Company. Curtiss went on to become a very successful player in aviation history. In 1911 Herring left and Greely S. Curtis and Frank H. Russell joined Burgess to form the Burgess Company. The Burgess Company was acquired on February 10, 1914 by the Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company. Starling Burgess and Greely Curtis both died in 1947.

And there was yet one more player in the early history of human flight and that was Glenn Martin. Glenn Martin was born on January 17th, 1886 and formed the Glenn L. Martin Company in 1912. In 1916 he merged his company with the original Wright Company, forming the Wright-Martin Aircraft Company. He soon left and founded a second Glenn L. Martin Company in 1917. Martin's first big success came during World War I with the MB-1 bomber, a large biplane design ordered by the US Army on January 17, 1918. It was the first purpose-built bomber produced by the United States.

Over the years the Glen Martin Company had employed many of the people who had later gone on to form airplane companies of their own. Included in this group of individuals were James McDonnell and Donald Douglas, whose companies eventually formed McDonnell Douglas naming David S. Lewis, Jr its chairman, and Lawrence Bell who founded Bell Aircraft and built the Bell 47, the first commercially available helicopter. Martin also taught William Boeing how to fly and sold him his first airplane. He later went on in 1917 to found the Boeing Company.

After researching all I could find about heavier-than-air powered flight it wasn’t difficult for me to realize that God had a hand in all of it and it was based on those patterns she had led me too. Even the beginnings of two of the best known earlier aviators, builders of those early airplanes who themselves hadn’t fit the patterns had their beginnings guided by those that did. Glenn Curtiss didn’t fit, but his beginnings were tied to that of Augustus Herring. And those others too, James McDonnell and Donald Douglas of McDonald Douglas fame they were tied to the other successful Glenn, Glenn Martin. But the stories of success didn’t stop here these were only the beginnings.

Those numbers themselves they were embedded in plain site in the designations of those airplanes and jets that followed. They were also embedded in the dates of those planes and jets maiden flights. And in some cases even the numbers of them and in one case that I know of the number of days from design to build to airborne, 117. It was that all important P-51 Mustang that helped us win the war in Europe. But it was also in the P-47 Thunderbolt, its designation itself. But there was even more.

It was on August 17th when a number of P-47s performed their first large-scale escort missions, providing B-17 bombers with both penetration and withdrawal support of the Schweinfurt-Regensburg mission, and claiming 19 kills against three losses. And earlier than this it was in the first P-47 air combat which had taken place on April 15th with Major Don Blakeslee of the 4th FG scoring the Thunderbolt's first air victory. Don Blakeslee was born on September 11th, 1917. Yes those numbers were everywhere and they played a heavy part in the history of the United States. And they were hidden from direct view so it could one day be revealed.

But these stories don’t end here they still only begin. There are many, many more on the Flight-Timeline.
