Danish aviation pioneer Jacob Ellehammer was born June 14, 1871 (d. 1946). Originally trained as a watchmaker, Ellehammer quickly got ambitious and started inventing motorbikes, aeroplanes and helicopters. On September 12, 1906 he made a tethered flight (as with most early flights, this one is also disputed), becoming the second European to succeed in making a powered flight. (His helicopter performed a hover as early as 1914!)

Above: This is the home Wright built for his son in Phoenix, Arizona. David Wright lived in the house till his death at age 102, and his widow Gladys stayed on till she passed at age 104.
