    Dr. Alexander G. Bell also headed up a small organization of men interested in flight known as the EAE. Several of the members of that group are of interest, including Selfrige, the first Army officer to be killed in an airplane and Glenn Curtiss who went on to found his own aircraft company and later combined with the Wright Aircraft Company. Bell is credited with inventing Aileon technology which moved away from the Wright Brothers' and their "wing warping technology."

    Pullman's company, after his death was responsible for the interior of the "Air Force One" aircraft used by the President of the United States for many years.

    Vanderbuilt's railways, helped shrink a nation and move people, produce and cattle, ushering in the end of the cowboy era. Instead of long cattle drives using the Chisolm Trail, cattle were simply loaded into train cars and shipped cross country. His railways were the first "super highways" of the nation.
