PS:'The first patent for using a gas turbine to power an aircraft was filed in 1921 by Frenchman Maxime Guillaume.'
More barfy butt face BS, you rely do make yourself look stupid

I was not talking about Maxime Guillaume, I stated fact that Frank Whittle registered the patent in 1930 and had the first successful bench test April 1937. I also mentioned that Ohain and Whittle are jointly accredited with inventing the Jet engine

These are documented facts, not made up BS about inventions that already existed and they wong be changed because you have a tantrum

Look up the meaning of the word INVENTION

Toys aren't airplanes, Chubby.
You "proved" that Pearse flew an airplane before the Wright Brothers... and I provided a quote from Pearse himself where he said he didn't fly before 1904.
A toy model isn't an airplane, Skanque, no matter how hard you stomp.
Wrong, there paten makes no claim to inventing the plane, the only thing that makes that claim is nationalistic liars like you.
Wrong, this subject has only been going here for a few days, I guess you syphilis is distorting your concept of time.
Wrong again fatso, it says so on the box.
Wrong again fatso, I offered a link that made a suggestion that upset you.
I don’t need to stomp, engineers agree with me, it’s not the size that matters. I don’t really care about the opinion of an obese syphilitic moron wuth a prro memory and a penchant for contradicting facts

Never turned a profit.
Got in the air and stayed in the air with French and British government funding. If it were a commercial success, there'd be Concordes everywhere you see... 707s,737s, 757s, and 787s.
Read the facts and weep

http://www.concordesst.com/retire/faq_r.html

On average Concorde made and operating profit of £30-50 Million a year for British Airways in the boom years where many passengers were travelling first class. British Airways reportedly received £1.75 Billion in revenue for Concorde services against an operating cost of around £1 Billion. Air France made a much smaller profit.

He wasn't the first. Who cares when he registered a patent?

In boom years.

Tell us: did you skip over the part which described how the plane got into the air and how the "profits" came before they paid back the government's cut?

"Why is Concorde being retired?

It is all down to cost: the Airlines are not making back the money spent on the safety modifications and other upgrades. With some other big costs coming up (tens of millions, before any life extension programme), BA need to write off £84M now, rather than £150M in 3 or 4 years. Air France will write off a large sum of money too. "

Tell us where the word "tennis" came from, and where and when rackets where first used.
Origin:
1350–1400; Middle English tenetz, ten ( e ) ys < Anglo-French: take!, imperative plural of tenir to hold, take, receive, apparently used as a server's call

"Tennis is originally an English racquet sport played on a rectangular court, from the beginning, and later outdoors indoors. The gameplay, which are separated by a net, can be one on one (single) or two against two (double), The game was invented in 1873 by British Major Walter Clopton Wingfield (1833-1912) with the ancient racquet sport of real tennis as a model."

From the first line of the Wikipedia definition:

"Murder is the unlawful killing, with malice aforethought, of another human, and generally this state of mind distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide (such as manslaughter)."

Murder is premeditated. End of. I don't give a sh!t what your shyster lawyers say.

I'm not the one claiming someone who flew a toy invented the airplane.

I'm the one who claims that a man got that got something off the ground that he could control invented the airplane.

You denial is purely jingoistic: note your long list of other (ridiculous) claims.

Wrong, and they didn't have the US patent either (which you seem to find important).

I'm not denying they rightly(!) claim the first successful powered flight, but you really need to get your facts right.

I read past the first line and don't use WIKI as a primary source.

Premeditated murder is one kind of murder, if there were not other kinds of murder, then word "premeditated" would not be needed to describe what kind of murder it is.

mur·der [mur-der]
noun
1.
Law . the killing of another human being under conditions specifically covered in law. In the U.S., special statutory definitions include murder committed with malice aforethought, characterized by deliberation or premeditation or occurring during the commission of another serious crime, as robbery or arson (first-degree murder), and murder by intent but without deliberation or premeditation (second-degree murder).

The Wright Brothers invented the airplane.

They had a host of patents.

Patents do mark a date as to define what came first when disputes arise, e.g., Skanque insisted (and brought up the patent) Whittle invented the jet engine. I (et al.) dismissed this, specifically, the first patent was not Whittle's.
