Caption: Alberto Santos-Dumont (1873-1932), Brazilian aviation pioneer. The heir of a wealthy family, Santos-Dumont experimented in aeronautics in Paris, France, where he designed, built, and flew hot air balloons and early dirigibles. He won the Deutsch de la Meurthe prize in 1901 on a flight round the Eiffel Tower. He built a heavier-than-air aircraft, the 14-bis, and on 23 October 1906 he made the first powered heavier-than-air flight in Europe to be certified by the Aero Club de France and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale. Santos-Dumont suffered from multiple sclerosis and committed suicide in 1932.
