It must have been quite exciting at those days to fly a drone with the help of permanent way (rails)
Indeed it is now exciting too.. with less efforts 🙂
I’m pretty sure they have one of these, or a replica of one, in the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, OH.
This is the WW1 Kettering Bug Flying Bomb at the National Museum of the USAF.
Not quite a drone, but still fascinating, and in 1848…
“In 1848 Stringfellow achieved the first powered flight using an unmanned 10 ft wingspan steam-powered monoplane built in a disused lace factory in Chard, Somerset [UK]”
