+ - Who Invented the Airplane? The Answer Depends on Your Nationality->

Submitted by Kelkhatib
Kelkhatib (2599591) writes "As Brazil moves further and further into the international spotlight (Olympics, World Cup) — there's growing interest in their history as it relates to their current invesment in innovation. This article uncovers the country's history with aviation. Ask an American who invented the airplane and the response will be “the Wright brothers.” Ask a Brazilian the same question and the answer you get back will be “Alberto Santos-Dumont.” The different answers stem from a controversy that stretches back to the dawn of the age of aviation."
