Lost Wright Brothers Flying Machine Patent Resurfaces

Wow!! :o :clap:

The patent file for the Wright brothers' original "Flying Machine" has returned to the National Archives, after being misplaced 36 years ago.

The long-missing patent paperwork filed by aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright on March 23,1903, included a diagram of their invention, their petition for patent approval, the patent registry form, and their patent oath, affirming that "they verily believe themselves to be the original, joint inventors" of the so-called "Flying Machine." http://www.livescience.com/54409-wright ... found.html

A "flying machine" you say. It will never work.

Doomed to failure. Like humans landing on the Moon, and trips to the planet Mars!

A collection of old articles about the Wright brothers:

The Wright brothers and their planes. Old articles 1903 - 1908.

The flights from Dec. 17, 1903 are not supported by evidence.

1) There is the declaration of Alpheus W. Drinkwater who said the Wright Brothers had only glided that day.

2) There also exists a well known picture which once magnified reveals (see the image) not so well known details like the visible slope in front of the flyer. Even admitting the photo was taken on Dec. 17, 1903, also it was published for the first time in September 1908, this can not be considered a true powered flight, as long as gravitation towed the apparatus with a considerable force.

Detail from the well known picture showing "Flyer I 1903" taking off on Dec. 17, 1903. The slope going down in front of the plane is clearly visible.

The declaration of Alpheus W. Drinkwater: "the brothers only “glided” off Kill Devil Hill that day. Their first real flight came on May 6, 1908".

The patent file of flying machine reminding the historic events. The Wright Brothers showed perseverance because they never gave up on their dream and kept on trying.
