  • Langley Aerodrome Excerpt for 1914 Smithsonian Report

     Four pages of text and plates 1 & 2 removed from the 1914 Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution, 1914.  This is the classic report on the tests by Glenn Curtiss of the Langley Aerodrome in which is stated: "The tests thus far have shown that the late Secretary Langley had succeeded in building the first aeroplane capable of sustained free flight with a man."  As a result of this report, the Wrights moved their Flyer to England; it was only returned after the Smithsonian published a report retracting their 1914 statements.  Very good original.
