* Brazilians don't know anything about the Wright brothers. To them, the inventor of the airplane is Alberto Santos Dumont! Specifically, note that the Wright brothers' flier was catapulted into flight. Santos Dumont's first flight was in a self-powered craft, and had many witnesses. It was also photographed. Since the flight took place in France, the French are also aware of this -- Dumont spent many years in France constructing various types of balloons and airships, as well as the first commercially produced aircraft, the ''Demoiselle''.

While the FAI wised up and airships, as well acknowledged the Wrights, to this day, Brazilians still see Dumont as the first commercially produced aircraft, the ''Demoiselle''.true father of flight, never that someone else did it three years ago.
