Do not worry, I will tell you the reason!

At the beginning of the 1900s,there was a person who interested in astrnomy.His name is Alexander Graham Bell.He found a guy named Glenn Hammond Curtiss had the same interest as him.

In October 1907,Bell set up the Aerial Experiment Association(AEA)

The members in this group were all the young people who well in the astrnomy.

After the Wright Brothers ivented the first plane,in other places,people also wanted to build their own plane.So the AEA started to major in building it.



Then for was safekeeping, it brought to Baddeck Bay.

Silver Dart’s first flight is in


NY in America.
