On the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

During the first world war the role of pilots strongly changed - instead of a simple observation at the beginning of the war, they became a formidable offensive force. If the pilots had previously been completely or unarmed, or armed with a gun, then by 1918 they were machine guns, destructive bombs, and aerial photography has become an irreplaceable tool of war.

Along with the new technology, used on the front lines and old, exotic, such as balloons and kites. This article will be interesting overview of Aviation World.
