Biplane Glider of Octave Chanute c1896 (1910). French-born American engineer Chanute (1832-1910) and his team began experiments with gliders, including this example, in 1896. Flight was achieved by running downhill until sufficient lift was generated for the glider to become airborne. From a set of cigarette cards on aviation issued in 1910.
