  1. They did not fly of the hill (Kill Devil Hill). They used the hill for their gliding in the previous years.
    The flight started on the ground so the machine had to lift off and they could proof that the machine was indeed flying and not just gliding.

  2. Thank you for this
    My friend Bella and I are doing a school project and the our school is doing a theme and the is game changers
    Me and Bella are doing the Wright bros and we needed information and this was perfect

  3. A Muslim scientist Abbas Ibn firnas from Spain. He is the first pilot of the aviation history. He is the father of aviation. He made a first glider and flew 10 minutes in 875, 1000 years ago to Wright brothers.

  4. that's bs. everyone says it was the Wright brothers because they were Americans, when in reality it was a Brazilian. Santos Dumont should have had most of the credit that was given to these dudes. Besides, it wasn't a "successful" airplane if it needed impulse to fly. Dumont created an airplane that could fly alone, by itself. That is a successful airplane.

  5. Read this free book: " The Wright brothers’ patents and their low importance for aviation ". The 5 patents of the two American inventors have nothing to do with powered airplanes. They are about gliders and are not original. The brothers invented nothing. One of them, filed in Feb. 1908, is a pure fallacy from the beginning to the end. Wilbur and Orville wrongly believed a glider could be stabilized in roll with a pendulum and in pitch with an Angle of Attack vane!!

  6. In France, a contest was being held for those who crisis a machine heavier than the wind and capable of flying. They established prerequisites for the machine to be considered an AIRPLANE. The flight had to be made with the presence of technical and witness jures, the flight site had to be open and with little wind. The brothers sent a letter to the association responsible for the event saying that they had invented the plane. The association asked for a photo of the "PLANE" and a flight in public but the brothers refused . Hence e. 1906 Santos Dumont Made a flight in public square meeting all the prerequisites and DETAIL Santos plane used PETROL ENGINE. Then the Brothers sent a flight video 5 years later saying that they invented the airplane the airplane first BEING THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE EVIDENCE and their "plane" took off in a windy place and with the help of a slingshot. WE CAN AFFIRM THAT THE INVENTOR OF THE PLANE IS BRAZILIAN SANTOS DUMONT (Santo not only invented the airplane but also the WRIST WATCH and the FIRST SHOWER PROTOTYPE)

  7. So, it didin't fly?

    Because, from what i got, the ""plane"" was pushed off a hill and glided around for some time.

    That's not a airplane, just a glorified glider.
