Otto Lilienthal designed and manufactured gliders in the nineteenth century, in Germany. He was a Professor of Engineering and he was interested in flight and particularly the possibility of gliding. He spent time developing the shape of a wing that would enable a man to glide. His designs were detailed and worked, although they were very dangerous. He died in 1896 when a sudden gust of wind caused him to lose control of his glider.
