From the time he was a child Bell had dreamed of a flying machine. For safety reasons his plan was to start out making kites - very big kites. When he had made a kite large enough to lift a man off the ground, then he would add a motor.
He had all sizes and shapes of kites; square ones, round ones, even star-shaped kites. His neighbors thought it all a lot of foolishness; a grown man out flying kites all day.
