Impact Post

The airplane never started out as an airplane, it started as ideas of flying machines that carry people through the sky. Like the hot air balloon or gliders but airplanes are easier, and more efficient to travel. Passenger planes are a big impact on today because it makes it safer and easier to cross oceans or get to different country's. Airplanes are a big way for people to travel around the world no matter what type of plane it is. Without planes people would either have to take boats, or drive but planes are much faster and easier.
