Wright brothers flew 2 years after Gustav Whitehead, researcher claims

제출됨
 
Shocking claim by Australian aviation historian John Brown: he has photographic proof that German immigrant Gustav Whitehead flew over Connecticut in 1901 -- Orville and Wilbur were second.

While there seems to have been some stuff surfacing from time to time, I wonder what the reason is for just trying to bring this up officially and to the public forefront over a hundred years later???????

Maybe Jane's is trying to sell more books...

That's what I was thinking...

Doesn't surprise me one bit.

In fact, Christopher Columbus comes to mind every time I hear about someone historically being the first to do this or discover that.

Or the guy they made that movie about, who invented windshield wipers for Ford or GM but got the shaft for his invention.

Same deal. I even read somewhere once that the Wright Brothers knew they weren't the first.

That probably explains why it was in USA Today. I didn't see it posted here so gave it a shot.

Slow News day at Fox. Maybe 'shocking' because it he announced it with Tase in hand?

Cant wait to see the difference in the story when it's aired somewhere else.
WALLACE24
Read it on several outlets. Reads the same. Duh !!

Unless I am mistaken, there is a similarity: all of the principals have passed and are not available to to contribute.

I believe you are correct and no one left to really push it, one way or other. It does make one wonder thought why the Wright Bros. claims were not strongly refuted back in that day, OR, why his was not more publicized than it was. Just remembering early history, the Wright Brothers accomplisment went around the world.

What I found really amazing on my visit to the Wright Bro's Museum in Kitty Hawk was learning how they applied the theories of aerodynamics and lift to their propeller design. It was this development that allowed high enough thrust from a smaller (lighter) engine to get airborne, and maintain flight. Most of the design elements of fixed pitch props today stem directly from their research and development. It was as much their prop that led to flight as it was their airframe design.

Could Wright brothers, N.C. lose 'first in flight' stature?

Was a German immigrant from Connecticut actually the first to fly?

The Wright Brothers may not have been the first to fly

Surprised? I was to. According to Jane's All the World's Aircraft, someone flew 2 years before the Wright Brothers. Read to find out more.
