Before we continue with our thrilling story of aviation, I think we need to do a little 'backstory'.....to fill in some gaps....
 
 
 
WE NEED TO GO BACK IN TIME!! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Remember our little friend from page one....Alberto Santos-Dumont?  Well, Alberto ( a Brazillian scion of a 'Coffee King'----ummm------let's say he had a TRUST FUND!!!   Bucky )  was already a celebrity in the salons of Paris during the 1890s for his feats of flying----in a balloon!!!
 
 
 
 
 
       
 
 
 
 
Alberto had many, many, powered balloon flights over the countryside and the city of Paris. 
 
       
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Well, in 1903, when the Wright Brothers first flew their plane, their feat did not generate much publicity or interest.  As late as 1906, the Scientic American magazine still doubted their claim!!
 
The rumor reached Europe, but was not taken as Gospel, and Alberto Santos-Dumont, the dare-devil of Paris, was determined to be the First Man To Fly!!!   Light It Up
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                     
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
TO BE CONTINUED.......
