”The earliest aircraft made by man were the kites and missiles of ancient China.” History of Flight Pavilion in Washington DC. From c800BC kites had high-tensile silk sails and silk lines over strong bamboo frames. They were used for military comms, measuring distance, testing wind, and lifting men! By 549AD sails were made of paper, another Chinese creation. Thousands of kites take to the sky in Beijing on the first day of spring.
