No. The Wright Brothers were mechanical geniuses, who had the brains to use science with their wind tunnel and gliding experiments to create the first practicle powered controllable airplane, with an engine and two chained propellers. The also had a camera set up and ready to record their first flight.

Correct and one thing is missing is back in 1902 - 1904 the brothers used Huffman hill to practice their gliders and the bike power flight..That J Brown forgot to examine the Archives at the family's museum..Also missing is the Blk editor who the brothers had in their newspaper shop on west third and Williams later known as Doctor Drew.who also wrote about the wrights achievements..Wright Brothers were and still are the First in Flight ..
