A Flight of Imagination
The notion of elevating oneself above the ground has intrigued and motivated people to explore a means to fly, both in myth and science. From the ancient Greek legend of Icarus's waxed wings, through Leonardo Da Vinci¹s late 15th century diagrams, to the Wright Brothers' first flight on December 17, 1903.
Above and Beyond
The Wright Brothers' determination and courage has inspired them to invent a heavier than air biplane, setting a landmark in the rich heritage of aviation. As a tribute to this achievement, in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the Wright brothers' invention, 2004 was announced worldwide as the aviation year.

As part of the exhibit theme, the exhibition hall's domed roof is painted sky blue and 3 satellites are floating high.* Appreciate a huge hot air balloon floating in the center of the hall, operated by a powerful fan, demonstrating the concept of lighter than air flight.
A fascinating comprehensive aeronautic journey awaits you!
