The First Flight to Ireland by Eddie LittleCode:
In December 1903, Orville Wright performed the first flight in a powered aircraft. Six years later, Louis Bleriot became the first person to fly across the English Channel, a distance of twenty miles. But who was the pilot who, without navigation aids or cockpit, and seated on a wooden plank, was the first to fly the sixty-miles across the Irish sea from mainland Britain to Ireland.
A story of Robert Loraine’s passion for flying and the trauma in achieving the record in 1910 by this long forgotten hero.
