    Default Early Nica aviation

    http://impreso.elnuevodiario.com.ni/...cionales/75511

    Juan Justo De Praslin, un médico matagalpino, construyó su aparato y alzó vuelo siete años antes del vuelo inicial de los antiguos propietarios de un taller de bicicletas en Kitty Hawk, Carolina del Norte.
    I think they mean siete años despues.



    Here's the NY Times article from 1910

    Wouldn't have expected that a Nica had such an early flight, just a few years after the Wright brothers. Of course rumor has it that 1 of the real first men to fly was actually a small boat station Coast guard man, which was helping the brothers with their aircraft, I believe it was more of an accidental flight.
