(London Daily Mail) A growing number of aviation experts say history is wrong about the Wright Brothers – their 1903 flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina was not the first.

This new movement claims the first manned flight of an airplane was made by German immigrant Gustave Whitehead more than two years earlier in Connecticut.

However, the only known photograph of the takeoff of his plane the Condor is too blurry to definitively confirm the flight and the original was lost decades ago – forcing historians to rely on a version that is even less clear.
