Thanks Santos Dumont.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 24, 2010:
Thank you very much Santos Dumont, you changed the ways of living and looking the skies.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri January 22, 2010:
Two Brazilians, who made history, Santos-Dumont and Alan Calassa that this is flying the 14-bis.Calassa living in Goias, Brazil. He made an identical replica of 14.BIS used by Dumont the first man to fly with a half heavier than the air in 1906 before a supervisory committee of the Aero Club of France. Giving that honors all people who helped him, as did Calassas a great man but small as Dumont

Good to see history in the air! love it!

This should be considered the first airplane, what is the use of a plane without propulsion.

Greetings from Argentina

A visitor from Austria posted Sat April 11, 2009:
Beautiful picture, very interesting airplane, and a more interesting saga behind. As a correction to the generally known story, on 18.03.1906 (so more than 7 months before Mr. Dumont), a Romanian did the first unassisted take-off with an airplane built and designed by himself in Montesson, France. His name was Traian Vuia...

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun March 8, 2009:
Without words to decribe this photo! The greater Santos Dumont!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu February 19, 2009:

Very cool subject,excellent set up & framing.reminds me of a very famous photo of the original aircraft.beautiful detail.

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon August 27, 2007:
The first airplane to fly under public observation, the 14 Bis built in Europe by Brazilian Alberto Santos Dumont is an icon of an era.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 3, 2007:
The very first airplane to take off by its own means, that's really awsome.There's a tribute to Santos Dumont on the top of the Eiffel Tower, he is the real father of modern aviation.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue July 3, 2007:
Shows Brasil's growing potential!!
Marvellous pic!

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Wed June 27, 2007:
The Wright Brothers flew the first heavier than air but Santos Dumont flew the first airplane, and here is the bonfide evidence. It's excellent to see the 14 Bis up in the air where it belongs! Aviation started here! Excellent!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue June 26, 2007:
Great shot, for an amazing moment in the history of aviation.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue June 12, 2007:
Great shot!
Congratulations Jaka!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun June 10, 2007:
Any doubt which was the first plane to fly? 100 years have passed and the 14-Bis project still works, different than Flyer replica. I'm so sorry Wright brothers!

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 10, 2007:
Great shot of the first lighter than air craft ever flown. The great Santos Dumont.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun June 10, 2007:
Thanks a lot Santos Dumont!!
