Gustave Albin Whitehead (born Gustav Albin Weisskopf)
================================================
May we collect his radiance in this topic thread! Some mention in forum has already occurred; we aim to bring links into this topic thread.
================================================
But let's begin with a contemporary share by ARP (Tony Prentice) ... forum member . Tony just sent me some neat links to some current happenings:
HERE TV report from Monday 13.08.18: VIDEO is with Germany speech. Neat replica and model effort. Nice to see the posters in the background. And the smiles. Double-decker by Weisskopf (aka Whitehead).

Joe, was this pilot supposed to have flown a powered aircraft before the Wright Brothers some place in south western Connecticut?

Hey Joe, I checked my facts and this is the same person who claimed to have flown a powered aircraft before the Wright Brothers. This is a fascinating topic.
