Submission + - Wright Brothers Grounded: German Gustav Weißkopf Lift Off 1901 (gustave-whitehead.com)

gentryx writes: "Newly found evidence supports earlier claims that Gustave Whitehead (a German immigrant, born Gustav Weißkopf, with Whitehead being the literal translation of Weißkopf) performed the first powered, controlled, heavier-than-air flight as early as 1901-08-14 — more than two years before the Wrights took off. A reconstructed image shows him mid-flight. A detailed analysis of said photo can be found here. Apparently the results are convincing enough that even Jane's chimes in.

His plane is also better looking than the Wright Flyer I."
