Abbas ibn Firnas was a famous inventor in 810-887 CE, he is mostly known for attempting flight.
I wonder if I could fly like a bird.
Oh wait I could just make a bird costume and a pair of wings!
Abbas ibn Firnas built wings and gathered feathers to cover himself in to fly.
Abbas ibn Firnas went to the top of the building with his wings and prepared to jump.
Abbas ibn Firnas' invention worked! he was gliding through the air, but he forgot one major component, a tail for landing.
Fortunately, Abbas ibn Firnas survived, but he hurt his back very bad. Luckily Arabic doctors had the technology to heal him, but that's a story for another time.
