“France was the first country to establish any kind of aeroplane industry. The Voisin brothers started it all out by laying down an assembly line of box-kite biplanes for anyone with enough money and courage to buy them! Sporting flyers also bought Antoinette and Bleriot monoplanes.”

“This will change your life! The word 'hospital' comes from the Latin word hospitalis, which means a house or institution for guests. The oldest hospital still in existence is the one you're flying towards! It was founded during the A.D. 600's by a prehistoric Navajo Indian who accidentally fell on a Neanderthal arrowhead! OKAY, only kidding! But the oldest hospital still up and running is the Hotel Dieu in Paris, and it was founded in the 600's!”
