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!

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!!

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.

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.

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...

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

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
