Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo Da Vinci was most known for his art, but that changed when he invented crafts, someofthem was a aircraft. Its been discovered that there more than 35 thousand words and 500 hundred sketches related to flying machines. To afirm this scientist found a codex page named codice sul volo degli uccelli (codex on the flight of birds). It didn't say but described when he started researching (1505), and showed he wanted to make his inventions work. He studied birds for a long time, for exchange he found out how birds ascend, descend and how they move their wings to turn. Around 1485 he began to draw sketches of flying machines. He was inspired by birds and bats. Many people wondered if he tested his invention and if they'd work. The answer is yes, Leonardo did actually test his inventions and some of them did work.
