North American X-15
First flown in 1959, the North American X-15 bridged the gap between human
flight in the atmosphere and spaceflight. It was the first winged aircraft
to fly Mach 4, 5, & 6 and to operate at altitudes above 30,500 m (100,000
ft). Eight of 12 pilots received astronaut wings.

Here's the original English text, a slightly different version of which can
be seen at this link:

1903 Wright Flyer
The 1903 Wright Flyer was the product of a sophisticated four-year program
of research and development conducted by Wilbur and Orville Wright. After
building and testing three full-sized gliders, the Wrights' first powered
airplane flew at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17, 1903, making a
12-second flight, traveling 36 m (120 ft), with Orville piloting.

(These are excellent counterexamples to the claim which is sometimes made
that Klingon is shorter or more succinct than English.)
