But one advancement in particular allowed us to take the war off land. The airplane was invented in 1903 by the Wright Brothers. Eleven years later World War I had begun. During the first year of conflict, airplanes were mostly involved in observation missions called reconnaissance. In observation missions the airplanes would fly above battlefields and determine the movements and position of enemies while also taking photographs.
The first use of airplanes in World War 1 was for flying above the battlefields and seeing what the movements and positions of the enemy’s. There were many types of aircrafts during WW1. There was the Bristol type 22, Fokker Eindecker, Siemens - Schuckert, Sopwith Camel, Handley Page 0/400 and Gotha G V. The Bristal Type 22 was a two seater fighter plane for the British. Fokker Eindecker was a single seater for the Germans. Siemens - Schuckert was a single seater for the Germans.
The initial plane builds were primitive and didn 't have some of the modern day functions we believe a plane has, Both sides of the war were trying to design planes that could hold heavy weapons like bombs or machine guns, By mid-1915, the infantries were already getting some entertainment by watching dogfights in the skies, and airplanes became significant factor in success in the second half of the world war one. Innovations in aeronautics were made after ww1 and those innovations would be seen in full view during ww2 and beyond. today the effects of airplanes in ww1 are ubiquitous and helped further our

Rudy Klucik ASEN 3046-002 1. Explain why this person, aircraft or significant development has had significant impact. One of the biggest catalysts for aviation development has been the utility that planes and helicopters serve on the battlefield. There are an innumerable set of utilities that aircraft serve in terms of purpose, from moving military personnel around quickly and efficiently, to their integral function in activities such as surveillance and active military engagement. It is because of that utility that in the time that spans from pre-WWI to Vietnam that aviation has seen it’s largest leaps and bounds, but the in the times that span past Desert Storm, through the Gulf War, and into current day military operations in the middle east, that the most important development has taken place, the development of Stealth Bombers with precision
