The Wright Brothers

On December 17, 1903
A little home built plane
Invented by the Wright Brothers
It did more than entertain

In the state of North Carolina
This first airplane was flown
At a town called Kitty Hawk
It soon became well known

Back then they couldn't envision
We would have jumbo jets
With built in movie screens
We can even bring our pets

Twenty four years later
Was Charles Lindburgh's flight
The first to cross the Atlantic
His landing was an awesome sight

Along came Amelia Earhardt
Two oceans she had crossed
Until that fateful day
When Emilia's plane was lost

In the Air Force as a pilot
Chuck Yeager flew so fast
Breaking the sound barrier
This speed was unsurpassed

Airplanes carrying weapons
Far back as World War One
It was built for transportation
To fight wars it needed a gun

Airplanes that got hijacked
Waited on the ground
Those jets flown into buildings
Would become a burial mound
