Caption: Augustus Moore Herring (1867—1926), American aviation pioneer, flying a glider. Herring designed and flew several gliders in the 1890s. In October 1898 he attempted powered flight, when he attached a small engine to one of his gliders. Some claim that this was the first successful flight of a heavier-than-air vehicle, however the aircraft was not steerable and the engine was only able to operate for 30 seconds at a time.
