I can’t claim to have created the first ever aircraft, that would be the Wright brothers.
However they inspired me to build my own aircraft, which I built with money from my Grandfather.
It took me two years to build and then I accidentally crashed it during it’s first very short flight near Litchfield, Hampshire.
