Christian Nimpsch, MHM Berlin-Gatow

The history of military aviation began already shortly after the invention of the first aeroplanes in the 19th century. Many aviation pioneers hoped that aviation would unite people and bring peace. But the employment of aeroplanes and airships in military conflicts even prior to World War I proved the opposite. Within just a few decades, humans had developed range and destructiveness of weapon systems to such an extent that they were able to destroy entire cities.
