Flight Lesson 2

We really enjoyed our second flight lesson with Mr. Tony Monaghan.

We learned about the jobs that engineers do when they are working with aeroplanes.  We saw a video of an aeroplane being built from scratch (that was very interesting).  We learned about the Wright brothers and their first flight in 1903.  We also learned about lightning and about how safe it is even if lightning strikes the aeroplane you are flying in.

A big “Thank You” to Mr. Monaghan, and to Ms. Boyd and her class from Fivemiletown who invited us to join in their series of flight lessons.  We are learning so many new and intersting things that we didn’t know before!
