Long the "Knights of the Sky", military aircraft received their baptism of fire in World War 1, a war that saw a continuous evolution of the species into evermore lethal fighting machines. These pioneering airmen - essentially airborne descendants of the mounted knight - duelled it out in the skies over Europe, early aviators armed with nothing more than personal sidearms and hand-dropped bombs. Far from hitting their ceiling, aircraft continue to evolve today with capabilities only dreamed of decades prior. With advancements made in UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), the age of manned flight may well be coming to a close.
