That Was the Month That Was

  • August 8th, 1709 August 8th, 1709 On August 8th 1709, Father Bartolomeu de Gusmão, a Brazilian priest, demonstrated a practical model of a hot-air balloon made of a paper envelope with burning material suspended below it to King John V of Portugal in the Ambassador's drawing room. This first ever demonstration of a practical lighter-than-air craft was curtailed by a gaggle of servants who snatched the balloon out of the air for fear it would set fire to the curtains.
  • August 23rd, 1977 August 23rd, 1977 Amateur cyclist and hang-glider pilot Bryan Allen piloted the 'Gossamer Condor', the first human-powered aircraft capable of controlled and sustained flight, over a 1.6kms course in California to take the $50,000 Kremer prize in 1977.
  • August 10th, 1912 August 10th, 1912 On the 10th August 1912, Frank McLean flew his modified Short S33 flying boat, along the Thames River in London, "creating a record by flying up the Thames in a seaplane, passing between the upper and lower parts of Tower Bridge and under London Bridge without touching the water." Sir Francis was a civil engineer, astronomer, pioneering photographer and aviator. He received the Royal Aero Club’s Aviator Certificate Number 21 on 20th September 1910. He served in the Royal Naval Air Service during World War I and became an officer of the Royal Air Force when RNAS and the Royal Flying Corps were combined. McClean is considered the founder of the Fleet Air Arm.
