What is it?? What does it do???

It's a two winged aircraft machine used for traveling through the sky using engines. They're used for transportation, recreation, research, and military.

When were they invented?

The first airplane was invented on December 17, 1903 by Wilbur and Orville Wright, or the Wright Brothers.

How has the invention of airplanes affected us?

By plane it would take about 8 hours to get across the Atlantic Ocean. By ship it would take anywhere from 3 weeks to 1 month, depending on weather. In the past it would've taken months. Going from Los Angeles to New York takes about 5 hours by plane, and would take about 41 hours by car. Airplanes are unquestionably the fastest way to travel.
