A century later, Lawrence Hargrave discovered the lift provided by a cambered wing. About that time, Octave Chanute compiled and published the first organized, written collection of aviation research. He shared his knowledge with many aviation pioneers.

Some of the valuable improvements made by other early aviators are incorporated in the two planes shown above the
