The Wright Flyer - This was the first ever successful plane to take off. It was built by the Wright brothers (Orville and Wilbur) in 1903 with big planks of source would and a motor to operate the propellor. This plane travelled a distance of 1500 feet, although this doesn't sound far, it was for the year this was built. The engine had also used a reciprocating engine.
