An airplane (or aircraft) is a flying vehicle, that uses fixed wings and propulsion to fly. Modern planes have one set of wings and are

called monoplanes, older planes could have two sets of wings and were called biplanes.

The first flight is considered to be flown by the Wrights brothers in 1903. Aviation has been evolving since then, along the same principles

used in the Wrights brothers plane.
