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.
