Hot air balloons were carrying people through the air almost a century before the Wright Brothers were even born. The first flight happened in Paris, France in 1783 and we still use them for recreation flights today. The passengers were a sheep, a duck and a rooster, and the balloon stayed aloft (in the air) for about 15 minutes.
