Father of Chinese Aviation
This storyboard does not have a description.
Six years after the Wright brothers flew their airplane,Feng Ru tested his own plane in Oakland,CA
Feng Ru's fame in china is equivalent to the Wright Brothers'. Middle and High schools were named in his honor. His childhood home was a museum.
Suddenly, a bolt holding the propeller to the shaft snapped, sending Feng tumbling to earth, bruised but otherwise unharmed.
Feng immigrated to the U.S. from China sometime between 1894 and 1898, when he was in his early teens, and immediately set to work doing odd jobs at a Chinese mission in San Francisco.
By 1906, Feng decided to return to California to establish an aircraft factory, building airplanes of his own design.
On August 26, 1912, Feng was killed while performing an aerial exhibition before a crowd of 1,000 spectators.
