The imagination of flying was restricted to the avifauna and the hereafter. An oriental concept of flying was for example presented by Pier Paolo Pasolini in an episode of his trilogy of myths using a flying horse. Though such couldn’t induce any practical conclusions in the occident. Still in 1880, the gifted Alphonse Pénaud was mocked and his problem solving of the aviation thrust through the invention of the rubber engine misunderstood. It was the media coverage of Otto Lilienthal’s flight experiments through scientific photo documents that first made the concept of overcoming gravity comprehensible to a broader public. Lilienthal’s success isn’t conceivable without the photographical pioneer Ottomar Anschuetz. Flying without means of imagination is unthinkable. Flying is nothing but a repeatable realization of flight relativity. Flying is an intellectual overcoming of gravity.
