In June 1783 the Montgolfier Brothers made the first public demonstration of a model hot-air balloon and in September - in the presence of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette - they flew a balloon carrying a sheep, a duck and a cockerel to demonstrate that it was possible to survive in the sky.
Some weeks later Pilatre de Rozier, a science teacher, and the Marquis d'Arlandes, an infantry officer, became the first human air travellers when, in a hot-air balloon, they flew for 9 km (5.5 m) over Paris.
A 1:50 scale model of a Montgolfier balloon, built c1900, is on display in the Museum.

Pilatre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes were the first humans to fly, on 21 November 1783.
They ascended in a Montgolfier balloon made of cotton and paper.
The brazier which heated the air to provide the balloon's propulsion set the balloon itself alight, so the two flyers had a hazardous trip extinguishing the fire with wet sponges.
