Aircraft are flying machines. There are many different types of aircraft including airplanes, helicopters and fighter jets. These are examples of aircrafts that keep high in the sky by moving air over their wings. Some aircrafts like balloons and airships keep up in the air by floating. Airplanes routinely fly at over 500 miles per hour. Less than 100 years ago it took more than seven days to travel across the Atlantic ocean because it is 3000 miles, or 4800 km, wide. Modern airlines travel the same distance in about seven hours, fighter jets can make the same flight in less than two hours. Orville and Wilbur Wright were the first ones to create a successful flying machine that left the ground for 12 seconds on December 17, 1903.
