Airplanes: Can You Name the Equipment From an Image?

Can you tell the difference between a propeller and a rudder, a cockpit and a cabin or a compass and a control wheel? Think you can identify the equipment and devices that help an airplane travel from here to there safely? Take our quiz to see how much you really know about planes!

In 1903, a pair of adventurous brothers named Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first self-propelled flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Their heavier-than-air plane traveled 120 feet in just around 12 seconds. While today's planes can take you all the way around the world in a single day, the basic technology involved in flight is the same; an engine creates speed, forcing air beneath the wings and generating the lift required to keep the plane in the sky. Just a little over a century after man first flew, nearly 2 million people travel by plane every day in the U.S. alone.

Watching planes fly might seem like magic, but it's actually a matter of simple science and technology. Of course, it takes a whole lot of equipment to keep the process running smoothly. Think you can name it all? Take this quiz to find out!
