CONCLUSION

Not only the airplane structure changed over


time, but also the airplane building materials.
Therefore, it is very possible for the
noncomposite aluminum airplane structure to
gradually become obsolete, as did the
methods and materials of construction used
by Cayley, Lilienthal, and the Wright
Brothers.
