Electric Fetus

Most people assume that Orville and Wilbur Wright were the first to make and fly an airplane. But other aviation pioneers built planes and flew around the same time. Why didn't they gain the recognition many experts think they deserve? Witnesses attested to Gustave Whitehead's August 14, 1901, flight over Bridgeport, Connecticut; on January 17, 1902, he flew twice over Long Island Sound. We also study Dr. Samuel Langley's Aerodome #5 and it's unmanned flight made two months before the Wrights.

"Available to Order" on electricfetus.com does not necessarily reflect 'in stock' at our retail location, however it means we have quick order fulfillment (generally 2-3 business days). If you place an order for "in-store pickup" or "curbside pickup" we will call you when your order is ready. It may take several days over a weekend or if the item isn't in stock.

You will be emailed if there is an additional charge before your order is processed. Due to new VAT laws, we are unable to ship to the UK, Norway, Brazil, and the 27 countries in the EU.
