Planes are great inventions that makes transportation easy. They are very useful for traveling.

The first planes were made in December 17, 1903 by Wilbur and Orville Wright. Planes are used for long distance transportation. They are amazing inventions. Many countries have their own airline company. Top 10 airline companies in 2016 are:

A plane’s engines are designed to move it forward at a high speed. Which makes air flow continuously over the wings, and throw the air down toward the ground, making an upward force called lift that overcomes the plane’s weight and holds it in the sky. Therefor, it’s the engines that move a plane forward, while the wings move it upward. For more information check (http://www.explainthatstuff.com/howplaneswork.html).

This relates to engineering by learning the mentality of pressure and how an invention stands against it. Have Fun searching more about it. Cause I know you wonder about planes. Also have fun watching the video!
