Here is a link to the Glen H Curtiss Museum's web site - < https://glennhcurtissmuseum.org/ >

If you are in the area stop on by and explore the museum! You have to see it to believe it. :thumbup:

It should be mentioned that, like the Wright Brothers, Glen Curtiss also flew gliders before he added power. Joe Faust has pictures that he found on line of Glen Curtiss and company on a hill where I think I have actually stood - over a hundred years later. :thumbup:
