  What happened 101 years ago?  There were at least three groups trying to 
  build an airplane:
  (1) A large group of scientists, engineers, and a jockey pilot, bankrolled by 
  The Smithsonian Institute, headed by Langley;
  (2) Another group of Canadian inventors, headed by Alexander Graham Bell;
  (3) Two preacher's-kid bicycle mechanics from Ohio (I forget whether they 
  finished high school).
And (4) Richard Pearse in New Zealand.
