Listing Detail Tabs

''It has been claimed that Richard Pearse,
a South Canterbury farmer, actually flew
before the Wright Bros in the US.
This has not been verified by
records, pictures or eye-witnesses.
A self- taught engineering genius who
built engines for his 'flying machines',
Pearse was reclusive and made no
positive claim to being 'the first' and
continued his inventive ways almost
until his death in 1953. Controversey
has always surrounded his 'flights'.''
