List of inventors who were killed by their own inventions in the field of Aviation


Aviation relates to the activities surrounding mechanical flight and the aircraft industryAviation founded in the 18th century with the development of the hot air balloon, an equipment capable of atmospheric displacement through resilience. Some of the most significant advancements in aviation technology came with the controlled gliding, flying of Otto Lilienthal in 1896, then a large step indifference came with the construction of the first powered airplane by the Wright brothers in the early 1900s. Since that time, aviation has been technologically revolutionized by the introduction of the jet, which permitted a major form of transport throughout the world.

It's really sad when an inventor dies due to his/her own invention. The inventors are so involved in their invention that they try their best by implying all possible failures and get success in their invention, we should have great respect for them it's not an easy task to invent something, it needs a lot of hard work, imagination, believe and attention so that a new invention takes place, so lets have a look at the list of inventors who were killed by their own inventions in the field of Aviation.

  • Ismail ibn Hammad al-Jawhari (died 1002 or 1008)
He was born in the city of Farab (Otrar) in Transoxiana (in today's southern Kazakhstan). He studied the Arabic language first in Baghdad and then among the Arabs of the Hejaz. Then he settled in northern Khorasan (at Damghan and subsequently at Nishapur). He died at Nishapur while attempting a flight from the roof of a mosque, possibly either inspired by an earlier glider flight by Abbas Ibn Firnas or due to delusions of being a bird, attempted to fly using two wooden wings and a rope. He leaped from the roof of a mosque in Nishapur and fell to his death.

  • Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier (Died 15 June 1785)
He was a French chemistry and physics teacher, and one of the first pioneers of aviation. He and François Laurent d'Arlandes made the first manned free balloon flight on 21 November 1783, in a Montgolfier balloon. He was among the first known fatality in an air crash when his Rozière balloon crashed on 15 June 1785 while he and Pierre Romain attempted to cross the English Channel.

  • Otto Lilienthal ( Died on10 August 1896)
Otto Lilienthal (23 May 1848 – 10 August 1896) was a German pioneer of aviation who was identified as the flying man. He was the first person to make well-documented, repeated, successful flights with gliders. Newspapers and magazines published photographs of Lilienthal gliding, positively influencing public and scientific opinion about the possibility of flying machines becoming practical. On 9 August 1896, his glider stalled and he was unable to regain control. Falling from about 15 m (50 ft), he broke his neck and died the next day, 10 August 1896.

  • Franz Reichelt ( Died on4 February 1912)
He was an Austrian-born French tailor, inventor and parachuting pioneer, He is referred to as the Flying Tailor, who is recognized and still remembered for jumping to his death from the Eiffel Tower while testing a wearable parachute of his own design. Reichelt had become obsessive on developing a suit for aviators that would convert into a parachute and allow them to survive a fall, should they be forced to leave their aircraft. Initial experiments conducted with dummies dropped from the fifth floor of his apartment building had been successful, but he was unable to replicate those early successes with any of his subsequent designs.fell to his death off the first deck of the Eiffel Tower while testing his invention, the coat parachute. It was his first attempt with the parachute, and he had told the authorities he would first test it with a dummy.

  • Aurel Vlaicu (died on September 13, 1913)
He was a Romanian engineer, inventor, airplane constructor, and early pilot. Aurel Vlaicu died on September 13, 1913, near Câmpina, on the outskirts of Bănești city while attempting to be the first to fly across the Carpathian Mountains in his " now aged A. Vlaicu Nr. II". He was expected to participate in the ASTRA festivities in Orăștie, near Binţinţi.

  • Henry Smolinski (died 1973)
A maker of flying CAR!!! The AVE Mizar (named after the star Mizar) was a roadable aircraft built between 1971 and 1973 by Advanced Vehicle Engineers (AVE) of Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California. The company was started by Henry Smolinski and Harold Blake, both graduates of Northrop Institute of Technology's aeronautical engineering school. He was killed during a test flight of the AVE Mizar, a flying car based on the Ford Pinto and the sole product of the company he founded.

  • Michael Dacre (died 2009, age 53)
The AVCEN Jetpod was a design proposal for a very quiet aircraft that could take off and land in short distances (STOL), developed by Avcen Limited the AVCEN Jetpod prototype was designed by Michael Dacre, He died after testing his flying taxi device designed to permit fast, affordable travel between regional cities.

Inventors take great risk to make sure their invention is safe and it would be helpful for humankind by doing so few times during their run test itself they gave their life for the world to live in happily we should all respect these inventors.
