"Two years, four months and three days before the successful flights of the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk, a birdlike monoplane took to the air at early dawn on August 14, 1901, near Bridgeport, Connecticut, carrying its inventor and builder, Gustav Whitehead, a distance of approximately a half mile."

Otto Lilienthal (1849-1896), known in his day as the Glider King, was a German scientist who believed that the route to successful flight was via ornithopters – machines based on the flapping motions used by birds. He was eventually killed in August 1896 when his glider stalled and he fell 50 feet to the ground. His final words were, “Small sacrifices must be made!”

Otto Lilienthal, pioneer of aviation, died in 1896 of injuries sustained when his glider stalled and he was unable to regain control; falling from about 15 m
