Collection: The trained locksmith, Gustav Weisskopf, who renamed himself Gustave Whitehead after immigrating to the USA, developed a flying machine with wings which could be folded back. On 14th August 1901 (two years before the Wright Brothers) Weisskopf is alleged to have accomplished a successful powered flight. Apparently, he flew a distance of approximately 800 metres with his home-made, engine-powered monoplane "No. 21".
