  Henson's Aerial Steam Carriage (1840)  
 

William Samuel Henson's Aerial Steam Carriage in an imaginary flight over the Scottish coast. The concept was very futuristic. A fixed-wing monoplane driven by propellers, reminding of a modern aeroplane. Henson patented it and had great planes for its future, but only a model was built.
