In 1908, Wilbur Wright flew the first public exhibitions of a Wright Flyer in France, and it wasn't long before aviation meets began thrilling crowds of spectators with races, altitude records, climbing and diving, and dramatic turns. Today, aerobatic flight remains an exhilarating type of flying in which a pilot performs precision maneuvers. See aircraft used by some of the stars of aerobatic flight—from barnstormer-style biplanes to the latest military fighter jets.
