Who Flew First: Challenging The Wright Brothers

Editor – Nicholas Dunlop

History books tell us that the Wright Brothers flew first in December 1903. But Australian aviation expert John Brown claims that the German-born immigrant to the US, Gustave Whitehead, flew 2 years earlier in 1901 and he has evidence to back his case. History may not be as certain as we thought.
