    @matatan69 You are not gonna change what millions of people around the world know.

    @junglemanlawyer1 , it wasn’t “HIS” invention, he has no patent bearing his name. USP #821,393 is owned by the wrights brothers and was submitted for appoval when dumont was still experimenting with balloons. It’s a fact that he began suffering of great depressions after being kick out of the aviators club for fraud infringement on the wrights brother’s invention of the aeroplane.

    @matatan69 Dumont killed himself after seeing his invention being used for war and not peace as he dreamed. Dumont was an inventor which includes among other things: the wrist watch.

    @mablus There is a film of Dumont’s failed attempt on 12Nov,1906 that the newly founded FAI initially (and mistakenly) called the “first flight” and this film, above all others, shows “why” Dumont and all of the other ACdeF members continuously tried, struggled, and failed. Finally, on 8Aug,1908, at LeMans, Wilbur tookoff with his Flyer III “A” and simply flew away, came back and landed near the stunned crowd! One of the FAI officials stated: “..ahhh, so that’s how an airplane flies?”

    @junglemanlawyer1 To avoid imprisonment Dumont promised to retire completely from the aviation arena after facing the evidences brought to court of his fraud. Dumont hanged himself years later because he lived in depression ever after the court agreement. Facts from NOVA!

    @mablus When it comes to his (Dumont’s) HTAs, like his 14bis (which was designed and built by G.Voisin and R.E. Peltrie for him) lacked a propeller, airfoils, a control system, and the 14bis was designed based on the idea of “Inherit Stability”, which proved out to be a failed concept. All can be confirmed by just a casual observation of available photos and film. Dumont’s next machine, (his model 15), its wings were glued flat veneer panels, but it fell apart when Dumont attempted to taxi!

    @mablus and what about the fact that Dumont’s first “official” (FAI) flight occurred on 13Feb, 1909, but only after he had illegally installed the “patented” technology of the Wright brothers. (USP #821,393). After Dumont showed up with his model 21 Demoiselle at the Aug,1909 Rheims Air Race&Show at Rheims, France, the LCGdeNG (French license holders of the Wright’s patents) filed in court on Dumont, Peltrie, Lavasseur, and Bleriot for their blatant violation of their patent license.

    @junglemanlawyer1 , Dumont’s first “official” (FAI) and only sustained and controlled flight occurred on 13Feb, 1909, but only after he had illegally installed the “patented” technology of the Wright brothers. (USP #821,393). After Dumont showed up with his model 21 Demoiselle at the Aug,1909 Rheims Air Race&Show at Rheims, France, the LCGdeNG (French license holders of the Wright’s patents) filed in court on Dumont for the blatant violation of their patent license. Facts from NOVA!

    @matatan69 You are going against facts! Nova is a program produced by “HARVARD” University and they know more about the history of aviation than you!

  10. matatan69 on November 23rd, 2010 11:31 pm

    @junglemanlawyer1 , aviation is my life, I fly airplanes, I own an A & P license and I am a graduate in aeronautical engineering. only dumb aviator wannabe’s like you do trash the internet with so many lies about Dumont. Dumont was a loser like all Dumonters on the internet, the man even hanged himself after being defeated by the wright brothers. you should be the one that must get a life and let Dumont rest in peace with his defeat.

  11. junglemanlawyer1 on November 24th, 2010 12:04 am

    @matatan69 What’s up with you going around the youtube poisoning the videos about Dumont? Go get a life.

  12. rubroxato88 on November 24th, 2010 1:00 am

    @vincentvining Not CGI dude, that is a fact, they flew it in many different places and there were many witnesses around and TV cameras.

  13. mablus on November 24th, 2010 1:19 am

    @matatan69 Or even easier search on google for fotos do 14 bis voando em paris, and then we talk.

  14. mablus on November 24th, 2010 2:14 am

    @matatan69 Yeah, yeah, Check on defesabr,com/fab and see a very old pic from one of those cliffs you mentioned . I got really astonished by the great enormously gradient descent, No mention to the trees and public down the object. You see, Wright Brothers were great , they introduced the basic design of planes that are used until today, but ignoring Dumont is just dumb.

  15. matatan69 on November 24th, 2010 2:50 am

    @vincentvining Notice that dumont always flies his shitty flier down a cliff where the gradient descent quicker than his falling speed to create the illusion that he is flying.

  16. matatan69 on November 24th, 2010 3:32 am

    @vincentvining Well, the fact is that the newspapers around that era all agree that the wright bros were the first to fly. Dumont was just imitating the Wright bros.

  17. matatan69 on November 24th, 2010 4:27 am

    @mablus yet he never sold a single aircraft and he could not pattent the aircraft invention because he lost the race to the wright bros, I also have noticed that dumont always flies his flier down a cliff where the gradient descent quicker than his falling speed to create the illusion that he is flying.

  18. matatan69 on November 24th, 2010 5:03 am

    @pedrobonatto Notice that dumont always flies his shitty flier down a cliff where the gradient descent quicker than his falling speed to create the illusion that he is flying.

    Alberto Santos Dumont é um verdadeiro mito: O homem que deu asas à humanidade! Com o 14 bis. concluiu um trabalho digno de um gênio! Seu nome deve ser sempre reverenciado e servir de inspiração às nossas futuras gerações. Quanta generosidade, quanto desprendimento em disponibilisar as patentes de suas invenções! Quanto altruismo se confrontado com a ganância daqueles que correram a garantir, mesquinhamente, seus direitos de patente sobre o que supostamente inventaram… Viva Santos Dumont!

  20. Pellegriniatibaia on November 24th, 2010 5:51 am

    Infelizmente, este vídeo é um dos poucos momentos em que tenho orgulho de ser brasileiro… Queria ter mais momentos assim…

  21. vincentvining on November 24th, 2010 6:03 am

    Before seeing a video of the Biz 14, I had never heard of him. Truthfully, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sr. Dumont did perform the first successful flight, as opposed to the Wright brothers. US historians have a tendency to confuse fact with myth, and this may be an example.

  22. celsoantoniobodini on November 24th, 2010 7:02 am

    you never heard of Santos Dumont, or I inderstand wrong

  23. vincentvining on November 24th, 2010 7:21 am

    The god’s honest truth is that it’s this big running joke I’ve had going on for a while, and that’s just the latest. The way it goes is that I saw a Biz 14 video and it said that it happened before the Wright Bros. I said that I’de never heard of Santos Dumont, and other people got after me about that. Ever since then, I just write ridiculous things in Biz 14 video comment sections just to mess with these dudes. Look up my youtube name and you can see what I’ve been saying in other vids.

  24. pedrobonatto on November 24th, 2010 8:03 am

    lol, sorry mate, just saw your comment… no, it is a fact, it flew in multiple locations all across Brazil. Why would you think it’s CGI?

  25. celsoantoniobodini on November 24th, 2010 8:50 am

    is no what?
