Birdflight as the basis of aviation.

Railroad Maps and Plans. It was therefore essentially the merit of Lilienthal, by applying his mechanical training to the problem of birdflight, and by a series of systematic investigations, to evolve some order from chaos, and to finally reduce the great mystery to a purely mechanical or dynamical proposition which, although incomplete in many respects, yet gave tangible shape to the whole, making it possible for future workers to fill the various gaps and to rectify some of the earlier assumptions which had.

That, in the light of birdflighg experiments, some of Lilienthal’s coefficients and equations had to be superseded, cannot detract from his merits. He also devoted an enormous amount of time and patience to experiment with test surfaces for the purpose of determining the best shapes for wings and for the amount of pressures to be obtained at the various angles of incidence.

But this very inheritance of disaster gives food for reflection, avixtion it is permissible to speculate whether the development of dynamical flight would not have proceeded on different lines had Lilienthal been spared some more years of useful life.

His successors were content to perfect his gliders, they stopped short at the tangible success of supporting planes and relegated the propelling function to the aerial screw propeller, admittedly an inefficient mechanical device, which can only be retained so long as we are content to move with the speed of an express train and content to risk the consequences.

The book is a translation from the original German book and includes all the drawings. His work in this line alone would have been sufficient to place Lilienthal on the front rank, yet there still remains to be mentioned his greatest contribution to the cause.

He was killed by a testflight gone bad in mid
